What Are You Doing This Summer???

College.  A time to expand your horizons.  Now is the time to take a risk and stretch yourself, because the longer you wait, the less opportunities you will have to do so.  With this in mind I ask you - what will you do this summer?  Most college students either find a summer job, go to school, or both.  Others take trips.  Still others will try and make a difference with the time they have away from the normal semester schedule.  What if instead of going to school or getting a summer job back home you decided to take an adventure?

Why not?

Here are a few suggestions, and by no means is this an exhaustive list, of things you might do this summer as a volunteer, short-term intern, job, etc.

1 - Take a short-term mission trip with a volunteer organization.  Some include:
  • Missioners of Christ - in Honduras and the USA (we are taking a group to Honduras at Spring Break with them.
2 - Summer Camps and summer work with youth:
3 - Teach English:
4 - Other volunteer opportunities (a short list - for more visit CNVS):
5 - Train to be an evangelist:

6 - Do pro-life work:

**There are, of course, thousands of other opportunities as well, both short-term and long-term.  If you have other suggestions, please post them below.
