Intervarsity Bridge DC Summer Internship Program

Jul 10, 2015

Casa once again welcomes The Intervarsity Bridge DC experience to the Chirilagua neighborhood! Bridge DC is a 7 week summer internship program. A team of student leaders move into the Chirilagua neighborhood where they will tutor local children and become part of the fabric of the community, attend a local church, and learn about the biblical justice issues as they build deep Christian community together both with teammates and the community. This year–among many other activities–interns assisted with Alexandria Presbyterian Church’s Vacation Bible School and are volunteering at Mount Vernon Community School’s Summer Language Academy.

We are a community of people “learning together to love our neighbors as ourselves” in a Latino neighborhood in Alexandria, Virginia.

As a faith-based Christian non-profit with a small staff and over 100 volunteers, we serve alongside more than 100 families and their children (1st-12th grades) each week through our community programs.
