Leadership Intensive 2017 Video


The Leadership Intensive is a 10-week summer program, where high school students from West Dallas are invited to participate in unique programming that will grow their leadership, entrepreneurial mindset, and grit.

College students are invited to apply for a paid internship in the Leadership Intensive. As an intern, you would help to facilitate the program by managing a student-run micro-business and serving as a mentor for the high school participants. 

We are looking for individuals who love Jesus, are relational and passionate about people & are interested in urban ministry and community development. Dates for the Summer 2018 internship are May 21st through August 10th. The internship is open to those 19 years & older who have completed at least one year of college or work post-high school. 

Applications are open as of October 15th. If you have any questions, please contact ally@mercystreetdallas.org.

Working for Mercy Street as a summer intern was an experience that wholly impacted the trajectory of my life. It moved me away from a compartmentalized ministry approach, and convinced me that incarnational, life on life ministry is what reflects Jesus the most. The internship was humbling, eye opening, loads of fun, hard work, and, most importantly, it made me look more like Jesus.
