Interns live with a host family during the summer. Our hope is that living together will encourage interns to grow in relationships with one another and encourage/challenge each other in their personal lives as well. Host families DO NOT provide meals for interns, so interns will be responsible for their own meals during regular work days.
If possible, interns will provide their own transportation while living in Baltimore. This will give them the freedom to travel to the office, practices and other places in the local area on their own.
- FCA Event Logistics
For FCA National Teams, Camps, etc. FCA Lacrosse will provide housing, travel, meals and other event-related expenses.
For the two-month Fellows Program, participants can earn up to $4,000. Part of the process of being on staff with FCA Lacrosse is to understand how a non-profit ministry is run. As staff members, we are required to raise our salary as well as administrative costs and any money that is required for activities to take place. As part of the Fellows Program, you will contact people in your community, friends, family members, and mentors to ask them join in you in your efforts to raise financial support for the summer. The support you raise will be your pay check up to the allotted amount. Any extra support you raise will go into supporting FCA Lacrosse as a ministry and helping other future members of the Fellows Program as well as cover the expenses created beyond the salary, such as: merchandise, training, retreat expenses, postage and supplies for fundraising mailing, check processing fees, and other administrative costs.
