Houseparenting Internship

Sometimes a family may not be sure whether working in childcare is something that would be a positive and beneficial career path.  Therefore, Cherokee Home is excited to be offering Houseparenting Internships.  This is a 1-2 week paid internship that can be done at any time of the year.  Your internship will include receiving the required training and documentation that you would need should you become a full-time houseparent; in-home observation and practice of cottage life; and salary, private lodging, and meals.

This is a great opportunity to use your vacation time to see if this mission field is right for your family.
