Compassion Connect is a Portland-based nonprofit whose mission is to combat division and apathy by uniting churches around what they have in common in order to serve and love their neighbors. We provide tangible opportunities for people to put their faith in practice, use their gifts, and make a difference through service. Two main areas that we help churches and individuals unite to serve their neighbors are community health and human trafficking. We accept internship on a rolling basis and can serve as an official site for college internship credit, so we invite you to explore your options with us at!

“Interning with Compassion Connect is such a special experience. From day one you are a part of not just a team but part of a family working together towards the mission of uniting the church to serve! Through my internship I was able to dive into research, grow in new skills, and build relationships with girls at the Design Studio [one of Compassion Connect’s anti-trafficking programs]. Through my internship, the Design Studio was able to pilot a youth entrepreneurship and job skills program over the next year, and the experiences and skills that I gained through my internship have helped launch me into my career!” -Dana Pair, former intern

“Compassion Connect friends, I feel incredibly blessed to have had the opportunity to work with and learn from each of you. I felt so included and taken care of here. I hope more interns get to experience your kindness in the future. I pray that this place, and your work, will be forever protected by the Father and be blessed and multiply. He is glorified by the things done in this place. I hope to work with each of you again sometime in the future.”
