Center for Vocational Reflection

Servant-Leader Internships

As summer approaches, students will be looking for internships to broaden their experiences and enhance their education. The Center for Vocational Reflection embraces this opportunity to walk with students through their internships. The Servant-Leader Internship program provides reflection and funding for students who are exploring their vocation, especially those interested in experiences with non-profit, church, or government organizations. Becca Poock, Community Engagement Coordinator, supervises these students and will be recruiting in the College Center this spring. Please encourage students to stop by to find out more about the opportunities through the CVR this summer. Questions or concerns contact Becca 794-8287 beccapoock@augustana.edu.
