Change A Heart works with applicants to determine their gifts and desires to find a placement that best suits the applicants’ skills, interests, education, experience and future goals.
Choosing a ministry site is a process of discernment for applicants, Change A Heart staff, and Change A Heart's partner organizations. It is often helpful for applicants to begin their discernment by choosing a general service area in which they are interested in serving during their year. This will be the starting point for all conversations with the Change A Heart staff regarding applicants' service placements. Applicants are also encouraged to be open to the needs of partner organizations.
After an applicant has completed the online application, interviewed with program staff, and been accepted into the program, interviews will be arranged with 1 to 3 partner organizations. Partner organizations and positions are selected based upon need, availability, and compliance. A Change A Heart member is matched with a partner organization when the applicant’s gifts and desires meet position and organization expectations for a mutually beneficial fit.
Examples of more partner organizations are below. If you have an organization you are interested in that is not listed we are more than willing to begin conversation with them and see if a partnership is available.
