August 11, 2017 to December 22, 2017
2 students needed (2 Males / 0 Females)
High School Diploma
(Includes cost of airfare, housing, food, insurance, visa, local transportation. Does not include cost of passport and innoculations)
A city straight off the pages of a comic book: interesting (some may say strange) buildings, a people oppressed by the darkness (located in the most lost region on the planet), and students who are desperately in need of someone who will bring the Light. In one of the most difficult soils, we need laborers for the harvest...now is the time! Come and work here as an intern teaching conversational English courses and help brighten the hopes of these students for a successful and secure future. You will enroll as a language student in a local university to which almost no one has gone with the gospel before. Build relationships naturally through any interests you have (sports, academics, film, photography, coffee...limitless opportunities) and invest your life in sharing the Good News among an unreached peoples who need the opportunity to hear.
Our people group varies from modern westernized to traditional and conservative. Local students wear nice clothes to class - nice pants and a collared shirt, and rarely wear casual clothes on campus. Generally, you will need to dress up more than the average student does in the US. More details can be obtained directly from the field.
Your city is located in the steppe, typically warm in the summer, with a short fall and spring. Temperatures in the summer can reach into the 90's, while winters can be on average -25C/-13F and can be as low as -40C/-40F with strong windchill for a week at a time.
Furnished soviet-era apartment or dorm room. Developing world conditions, so the expected living standard will be lower than the US.
Candidate should be able to walk a lot, climb five flights of stairs (if you live on the 5th floor of a building, you would be walking up/down 5 flights perhaps multiple times daily), and endure cold weather with a winter windchill sometimes reaching -40C (or +40C heat during summer). The main health consideration is the ability to endure the extreme cold winter temperatures and a lengthy winter season (5-6 months).
To be discussed on a case by case basis. Personal medical conditions that may pose a threat under developing world health care conditions should be disclosed during the application process and discussed with field personnel.
Equipment to Bring:
To be discussed with field upon acceptance of assignment.
