Normally 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. For most people, the summer internship often is a life-changing experience.
Some extra summer activities include picnics with our unhoused 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.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 Summer Program is canceled. Hopefully, we can resume in 2022. Please check back in early 2022.
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.
