Bringing college students into our world in Ocean View is the backbone of Look Listen Love and we want you to be part of our story.
We're currently accepting summer and year-long interns to come serve with us in Cape Town. This is not your average internship and will be different than any short-term mission trip you've ever experienced. We believe that mission work should be RELATIONAL, COMMUNITY-DRIVEN and EFFECTIVE.
What does this mean to us? It means that your trip won't just be about your experiences, but also about those you're serving. We'll teach you how to critically look at community development, spiritual growth and serving others so you'll have the tools to carry out God's call to love others in any situation you find yourself in. We don't want to be the international experience that you can fondly remember in the future- we want to be a critical part of building your foundation to a life fully devoted to loving others like Jesus loved.

- ~$1400 for plane ticket
- $2300 for ALL living expenses
- Gain a cultural understanding of the post-apartheid environment in Cape Town

Relational Ministry Interns:
While serving in Cape Town, you would have the opportunity to be involved in a great deal of relational ministry which is just ministry while building friendships. You will get to come alongside adults, teens, and children and form relationships with them within which you can share the love of God with them.

Furthermore, Ubuntu and other partner organizations need administrative and behind the scenes interns to help build God’s work.
