Internship Opportunities


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 Intern Program 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, attending free concerts and other forms of entertainment, and highly-favored pool parties and BBQ’s hosted by longtime supporters and friends.

NOTE: The LACW is now accepting applications for our 2023 Summer Intern Program, which will take place from June 26 to August 7. Please apply for this in-person experience by clicking HERE or download, complete, and submit this PDF  as soon as possible to [email protected]

If you cannot participate in person but would be interested in virtually attending our learning sessions, please e-mail [email protected] and articulate your interest.  Please include your name, primary e-mail address, and phone number.

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 information, see our Visiting Information Page. Thank you.

    Good Afternoon,
    I would love to volunteer at the soup kitchen and view how this community functions. I am an avid volunteer for many community programs. I have worked at the soup kitchen as a volunteer and board member, local community center, Shepard Symposium at our University of Wyoming, Staff senate for our University Wyoming staff. Also have volunteered for Safe Project as well. I would love to volunteer for a week -. Is it possible to have a room/board for the exchange of working for one week? It is my goal to travel through our states and volunteer a week in each place. It is a somewhat spiritual journey for me.

    thanks so much
    Sophia L. Beck
