About CrossRoad: CrossRoad is an engaging summer institute for Orthodox Christian high school juniors and seniors sponsored by the Office of Vocation & Ministry at Hellenic College. CrossRoad offers two ten-day sessions on the campus of Hellenic College Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology in Brookline, Massachusetts, as well as a third session on the campus of North Park University in Chicago, Illinois.


The Office of Vocation and Ministry (OVM) and CrossRoad Summer Institute at Hellenic College seeks to hire an intern who would enjoy being a part of our fast-paced, organized, and technologically-oriented office before and during the three sessions of CrossRoad in Boston & Chicago (May 26 – July 31, 2020). The OVM/CrossRoad is comprised of a small, dynamic team dedicated to fulfilling its mission to train, educate and inspire the next generation of leaders for the Orthodox Church.  During the summer, the intern would serve as a backbone to the CrossRoad program, assisting in all logistical and administrative tasks to make sure the program runs smoothly. They will also have the opportunity to sit in on some of the classes/sessions during the CrossRoad program, to develop their theological knowledge.

Through this position the intern will gain experience in project management, event coordination, and task management and will gain first-hand experience as to the inner workings of a vibrant ministry in the Orthodox Church.
