New Life’s Growing Trees Internship is a 10 month program that provides a safe environment and leadership development for approximately 30 young people per year.
The interns come from the following scenarios:
-Young people that have just graduated high school and are often not equipped with the character and decision-making abilities necessary to go on to live a successful life.
-Within the church, young people that get saved lack a strong Biblical foundation for their faith and often, do not understand their identity in Jesus.
Our ministry is designed to equip young men and women to be Daniels - this means to go live influential and successful lives in whatever area God has called them to. We focus on 4 S. They are Shake, Shape, Serve and Send.
Most of our interns have very little money. In order to keep our costs to a bare minimum, those who join us from the outlying provinces live in our Next Step dorms, and many rely on a small rice supplement provided by the dorm just to eat. They are required to pay a small amount to join the internship, but that money only covers a small fraction of the costs of running the internship. Our staff are a combination of expat volunteers and Khmer church employees
