Hey there! Thanks for taking time learn about the opportunity I have to be a part of the Forge Internship with International Teams Canada.

iTeams Canada is a Christian organization that strives to end poverty through coming alongside individuals and communities. The vision and mission of the organization is to see lives transformed by the power of God! iTeams does this through providing education and the necessities of life to vulnerable people around the world. As a Forge Intern I get the opportunity to go and work alongside local leaders in the Dominican Republic and Guatemala. Working alongside the local leaders in these countries means I was able to collaborate, listen, and learn from them and their communities, as well as work with them to improve the programs and see communities and individuals flourish. With the local leaders and my fellow intern, we are working on reflecting on the transformational work God is doing in their communities. With this information, we will be able to develop strategic plans together and add velocity to life changing efforts around the world.

I am thankful to have already spent time in the Dominican Republic and Guatemala for October and November, to work alongside these local leaders. Being there representing iTeams, I was able to reflect and review the impacts that these programs have made on the communities. As a Forge Intern, I am now working with the organization of iTeams and with the implementing communities to continue to develop and evaluate their programming, and together create goals for the programs going forward. 

Please take some time to read a bit more about my time visiting Impact Dominican Republic and Impact Guatemala are all about below:

THE "M" Word: 

International development or development in any area of the world including your own city, takes financial resources to see change and to equip communities to flourish. As an intern, I am going to reach the goal to raise $10,000 for the programs that iTeams works with - to help them improve, add velocity to the work being done and to see long-term transformational development happen.

To be very candid and clear:  the money raised here is not for me personally - at all! The fundraising component is for directly adding velocity and supporting Programs! The money will allow iTeams to support and continue to work alongside the programs running around the world. Personally, I will be contributing a percentage of my salary towards supporting iTeams programs as well. Choose to join me in living generously in this season! 

YOU ARE INVITED

With that being said - I encourage you to be apart of what I get to be apart of. I want to invite to be apart of  this vision, to contribute to what is happening through International Teams. This is an opportunity for us to be apart of what is happening in these programs, to pray and live generously through our resources; to support what God is doing in these communities around the world. 

I cannot express how excited to be working for an organization that places huge value on faith being an integral part of the development work. Moreover, iTeams strives for transformational development - this is long-term relationship building, empowering of local leaders and communities, adding velocity to the passionate local leaders and community work being down, and more than anything seeing communities find their purpose through God and discovering His love! Know that trough your support, you are a major player in the transforming work and development that is being done! Without your support - none of this would be able to succeed!

Together, let's make an impact, live generously & see lives flourish!
