SOZO CHOIR INTERNSHIP
December 2019 - May 2020
We are so excited to bring a new element to our choir in 2020. Sozo Children is looking for 5 interns to travel with the choir for the duration of their time in the States. This will also include a trip to Uganda to meet them in their homes and bring them back to the U.S. to begin the tour. Please see details below if you are interested in applying for the internship.
