Each year from late June/early July to mid August, the Los Angeles Catholic Worker extends an invitation to any adult (age is not a factor) interested in joining us for a six week period during the summer. This is an opportunity to live and work with a gospel-based resistance community that also operates a soup kitchen on Skid Row, to discern one’s vocation, or simply deepen one’s social justice experience on a first-hand basis.
Some extra summer activities include picnics with our homeless friends at a beautiful park with a lake and nature trail, visits to the beach, attend free concerts and other forms of entertainment, and highly-favored pool parties and BBQ’s hosted by longtime supporters and friends.
Applications for the 2018 Summer Program are now CLOSED. The 2018 dates are from July 2 to August 11. For an internship application for 2019 you can either send an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org or download an application HERE. Closing date for 2018 was March 27. Applicants will be notified in early to mid April (at the latest) as to whether or not you were accepted.
Interested in staying with us but the summer months do not work with your schedule? We regularly welcome interested adults to spend a week to a few months with us throughout the year beginning immediately after the summer program ends until mid June. For more info see our Visiting Information Page.
