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.
High school students, called "junior interns," will spend their summer interning at Mercy Street, learning about business while growing in their faith and leadership skills. Junior interns spend their time learning in the classroom and from local businesses, participating in small group Bible studies, and serving in West Dallas. They also get the opportunity to work at Mercy Street Industries in one of our four micro-businesses.
A key piece of the Intensive is the team of college interns, called "senior interns," who help facilitate the program. Senior interns take on the roles of huddle group guides, small group leaders, and Mercy Street Industries managers; but their jobs extend far beyond this. Senior interns commit to a summer of doing life hand in hand with the community in West Dallas.
