Each of our site placements put our fellows on the ground and engage them in ministry to low-income and marginalized communities. These site placements have a proven track record of success, and many flourished in the rich, innovative environment of service in Baton Rouge and New Orleans. They provide supervision, training, and guidance, to develop not only competence in the duties required but understanding of the full scope and mission of their agency. Each fellow becomes an integral part of their site placement agency, attending staff meetings, meeting goals and benchmarks, and working within the agency as a full-time employee.
