Next Step Ministries Summer Internships

In 2007, Next Step Ministries started an internship program for construction and engineering majors that wanted to use their skills out in the mission field, designing and building homes for communities in need. They currently partner with about 20 CM/Engineering programs across the country and provide summer co-ops in 16 communities here in the US, Haiti, and Guatemala. They have multiple open positions as Construction Managers and Construction Team Members for the 2017 summer.

Ongoing Opportunities 

SCSE Sidekicks - Mentorship Program

The purpose of SCSE Sidekicks is to ease the transition of underclassmen and new transfers into the SE program at UCSD, and to encourage increased involvement in SCSE from all students. This is a good way for Sidekicks (upperclassmen) to give back, and for the Heroes (underclassmen and new transfers) to get advice on classes and get more involved in SCSE! Registration for the 2016-2017 year has closed.  

SCSE Incentive Program

The SCSE incentive program was created in order to encourage members to take advantage of the many opportunities we offer and to become more involved with the organization. Students who accumulate certain amounts of points are awarded with prizes like T-shirts and reimbursement for the Pacific Southwest Conference, as described in the SCSE Incentive Program 2016-2017 PDF.

See the SCSE Incentive Points PDF to see how many points you currently have. If the last four digits of your PID are not shown or if you believe there is an error with your points, please contact Gabby Morales at gmorales133@gmail.com.
