Fellowship Program

The Rostro de Cristo International Fellowship Program is an initiative for faith and social justice leaders to develop and grow their professional skills in an international and intercultural context. Offering their professional skills and experience, RdC fellows will support community-based efforts to positively impact the lives of marginalized communities and assist in the development of collaborative ministry with our local partners.
