During this eight-week summer program, the students will work with ECBC mentors to gain “hands-on” experience in a professional setting.  At the end of the SEAP apprenticeship, students will prepare and present final reports based on their experience.  All students who successfully complete their apprenticeship are eligible for an educational stipend.

Host Families Needed for NET Team Members – March 18 and 19, 2019

Assumption High School is looking forward to our Sophomore NET Retreat on March 19, 2019. NET traveling and parish team members all spend a year away from their own families to share their faith with young Catholics across the country. They can end up in a different city every night, and “host families” are the vital part of NET Ministries that care for teams while they’re away from home.

Interested in hosting a NET Team Member?

We are needing host families on the night of March 18th and 19th to house 12 members of the NET Team. We would need host families to house 2 members. Host families provide a place for team members to eat, pray and rest their heads each night, and many team members cite an experience at a host home as one of their favorite memories from the road. Many families welcome NET teams into their homes year after year, and stay in touch with the team members even after their time with NET has finished.

When applying to host members of a NET team, host families can request men or women.

Please contact the Campus Minister, Natalie Imborek @ Natalie.imborek@assumptionhigh.org if interested!
