In 2009 Edify's Short Term Mission Program
(STUMP) brought passionate youth into urban environments to learn from
and serve their community. Facing homelessness, drug abuse and mental
health issues the one week intensive opened their eyes to the realities
of city based social work. Addressing the need to provide
further means of engagement after the Stump week, the Edify Internship
and Cert IV in Youth Work were created.
Charlotte was one of three
accepted into the initial year of the Internship and Cert IV program in
2010. This is her story.
