About the Program
The New York City Urban Project’s Summer Immersion Program 2013 will bring students together from all over the world in an effort to be faithful with the time, talent and treasure God’s given us to learn to do right, seek justice, and plead the case of the orphan, the widow and the fatherless (Is. 1:17). During the day, students will serve in missions internships loving “the least of these”. At night and on weekends students will seek the Lord in prayer, worship, bible study, discipleship and field trips.
NYCUP 2013 Opportunities!
Corporate & Individual Partners
If you study business, fashion, marketing, economics or have interest in those fields, then we are looking for you! You will be doing research, making phone calls and having face-to-face meetings with women and men in these industries in an effort to build our network and deepen our partnerships with like-minded individuals.
You will also have regular meetings with Christians who are involved in finance, fashion and business to further grow your understanding of faith and work.
Caring for the vulnerable (P + I = E)
Poverty plus isolation equals exploitation. By reducing poverty of being, community, stewardship, spiritual and material poverty, along with reducing physical, emotional, geographical, and spiritual isolation, we can reduce the chance of someone being exploited or exploiting someone else.
You will help develop a curriculum for working with vulnerable people while serving these populations directly through tutoring/mentoring, providing meals, advocating ad counseling.
Students studying education, social work, sociology, and the Arts are encouraged to apply.
Logoff stands for “Local. Green. Organic. Fair (trade). Free (no slaves).” We aim to develop the go-to place for mobilizing the next generation of abolitionists. Members of this team will take the hard work done by last year’s LOGOFF Team and take it public! The LOGOFF Team will live out this initiative by preparing food, mapping LOGOFF retailers in New York and New Jersey and documenting our lives trying to live out LOGOFF.
This internship is for anyone who loves to cook/wants to learn, enjoys teamwork, is interested in doing research and asks the real questions about how we will mobilize millions of people to fight sex-trafficking and labor slavery as well as keep them going. Click here to read about LOGOFF.
“Capture NYCUP” Video, Photography and Journalism
If you want to capture amazing stories with your pen or your lens, then this is the internship for you. Fighting sex-trafficking and labor slavery is NOT easy, but it is possible. You will be partnered with a professional Christian mentor and meet other professionals in the field as well. We will work with you to craft a project suiting your gifts and passions as you “Capture NYCUP”.
