The Catholic Campaign for Human Development is the domestic anti-poverty, social justice program of the U.S. Catholic Bishops. Its mission is to address the root causes of poverty in America through promotion and support of community-controlled, self-help organizations and through transformative education. CCHD accomplishes this mission by (1) collecting and allocating funding to projects that address the root causes of poverty through institutional change efforts and (2) through its education activities for parishes and the Catholic Community.

This stipend-provided (academic) year-long internship is available for young Catholic leaders to gain experience working with and on behalf of the poor through the CCHD archdiocesan office. Opportunities include: learning about the grant allocation process, development of promotional materials, assisting with parish retreats on issue of social justice, connecting with Catholic youth to promote the issue of social justice.

Open to Catholics ages 18 through 30.
Time Commitment: 10 to 12 hours a week for 24 weeks to be completed during the school year.
Stipend Provided: $14 per hour
