Do you want to make a difference in the life of a child? We do too! Children need a safe space where they can learn and grow. For over 40 years, First Baptist has done just that. We are a church where everyone is welcomed and affirmed – no matter what.
What will I do?
Through our preschool (3-5), you will have a chance to mentor children. This happens through conflict management, bible stories, cooperative recreation, and free play. You will have an opportunity to support children and families by showing up at their sporting events, sharing your positive attitude, and living out your faith in real and tangible ways. You’ll also have the opportunity to help with special projects that support our church members and community.
Where will I stay?
While serving in Tahoe, you will live at First Baptist Church. We have two dorm rooms that sleep a total of 12 people.
The church is located approximately 2 blocks from downtown Tahoe City. Tahoe City is located on the north shore of Lake Tahoe.
What’s your church like?
While “Baptist” is in our name, we are functionally an interdenominational church. Our interns come from a variety of faith backgrounds.
You’ll find our church very loving and supportive. They want to get to know you and help guide your spiritual development. Our congregation loves Tahoe and will often take our interns on adventures.
Who will I work with?
While here you will be supervised by a team of people who have years of experience caring for children. Besides supervision, we provide opportunities for spiritual, professional, and personal development.
How do I qualify?
Excellent understanding of the principles of child development and preschool educational methods
Excellent communication and instructional skills
Ability to act as mediator between children
Cool-tempered, friendly and reliable
At least 12 credit hours in early childhood or family studies
Our ministry programs are fully licensed through the State of California Department of Social Services and follow all of the State of California COVID-19 guidelines for child care facilities and churches.
