The Groups Intern process is designed to be an engaging and relational process. It is intended to encourage and equip upcoming group leaders with the tools they need for stepping into leadership.

As an intern, you will spend time learning more about  HighRidge Group’s culture and will have opportunities to practice leading with support and coaching from a current group leader. At the close of the semester, the leader of your group, will meet with you to decide together what your next step will be. You can take steps through internship, co-leadership, and group leadership. Once you have completed your Group Intern process, you can register to lead your own small group.
