The Church’s self-reliance program teaches important principles in the areas of leadership, education, employment and small business development. BYU collaborates with the Church in Latin America by sending qualified students to help support the self-reliance programs in different countries. This fall semester interns will work at Church Self Reliance Centers in select countries in Latin America. This internship will offer you the opportunity to learn from and serve others, further enhance your foreign language skills, gain valuable international work experience, and receive academic BYU credit. Selected interns will work closely with the local Church self-reliance managers and leaders to help organize and facilitate Church self-reliance groups and initiatives. The main objective of this program is to help individual members learn to become more self–reliant.
