Resident Summer Staff
About 40 high school and college students (must be as least 16 years old) are hired each year to live and work on Shocco’s campus for 9-10 weeks during the summer. Summer staffers provide essential services for our guests, and also participate in worship, Bible study, recreation, and mission trips throughout the summer. Summer staffers receive hourly pay and typically work 30 to 40 hours per week. Shocco provides free room and board for all resident summer staffers. Additional benefits include close friendships, job experience and the joy of serving others.
