We are looking for 3,6 and 9 month commitment for interns at our retreat center. Heart Ridge Retreat and Cultural Center is located on the edge of the Blue Ridge mountains in South Carolina near the border of North Carolina. It is located near many outdoor activities like paddling, hiking, mountain biking, fishing, and cycling. We attract people looking for places to stay to enjoy these activities. We also offer places for parishes and other church groups to use the facilities for their own retreats. Finally, we offer our own programs--retreats, conferences, and other outdoor-type activities.
Now that we have continuous activity at the Retreat Center from travelers in our hostel to regular events, we are moving from just a summer intern program to a year-round, revolving intern program at Heart Ridge, meaning you can pick your length of stay and when you want to start and end. If you decide to stay longer than your original plan, you'll simply put in a request to extend your time. We want a consistent team of 6-8 individuals who will run the programs, serve the guests, and manage the facilities at the retreat center.
Our apostolate is evangelization through 1)hospitality, 2)spending time in nature., and 3)our educational/faith-based/cultural programs.
We want to share a life together and build a community with a common goal. We will provide room and some board. Dinner will be provided most evenings so that we can share in the fellowship of a meal together. Once a week we will also gather for a reflection or book study discussion. We will work 8 hours on most days, but you will have one day off per week. We will also ask everyone for an hour of adoration each week for the guests and retreatants.
You will receive a weekly stipend.
