ServeHere identifies extraordinary rising junior and senior college students who want to use their gifts to make an impact, while engaging in a world-class workplace and ministry experience. We place the students into meaningful internships with local faith-based non-profits, enabling students to gain valuable workplace experience while contributing to the mission of the non-profit.
The internships are carefully designed to give students a chance to make a real impact, while honing their skills and working with dynamic leaders inside the non-profit organization. ServeHere pairs each student with a non-profit that matches their interests and have projects that utilize the skills the students is learning in the classroom, or the passions that they pursue outside of school. Outside of the daily activities of the internship, students meet with a mentor who is a Christian executive with a heart for missional living.
A curriculum has been developed to: prepare the students for success in their internships; engage with like-minded students; and receive one-on-one coaching from their mentor.
The program is 10 weeks long, with students required to work 20-25 hours a week, plus time to meet with their mentor.
We are looking for juniors and seniors, from a diverse range of majors, that we can plug into challenging assignments in amazingly impactful non-profits. The roles they fill are tailored to their interests and capabilities.
Whether you are majoring in marketing, management, finance, accounting, or BHP -- we can find the perfect place for you to use your developing skills, working alongside talented leaders who are investing in your personal and professional development. Students accepted into the program are mature and passionate Christ followers who want to explore how their life, and their careers, can answer a higher calling. They have experience serving others and want to go deeper.

What some of our recent students have to say about the program:
“With all of my classes being online during those two semesters, I really hadn’t grasped a lot of material or knowledge that would’ve helped direct me to a career path. My confidence in who I was, what I had to offer, and where I wanted to go simply didn’t exist until starting ServeHere. One of the biggest things I developed throughout my time in ServeHere was not only finding my confidence in my creative and communicative abilities, but finding my confidence in who I was through the Lord’s eyes.” -Riley W.
“ I just accepted a job at Texas Children’s in Houston to work as a pediatric oncology nurse!! Just so sweet to see how God is faithful even in our doubt all the way from my internship at The Source and our summer together” - Maggie T.
“This summer, the spirit, through my Serve Here experience and community, helped me to reframe my searching from the "what" to the "why." The "why" is ultimately more important.” -Nathan S.
“Iesha changed my life and shaped my faith. She is bold, challenged me, and never let me settle for less than what the Lord was calling me to. She encouraged my work when it got hard, showed me what relying on the Lord looks like, talked me through anxious moments and seasons, and encouraged me to be better in all aspects. I will forever be impacted by the ways she loved me this summer.“ -Victoria S.
