Mission experiences provide an opportunity to serve with an organization whose roots are in the community you are serving. The agency or mission is set up to meet the needs of the people in a variety of ways. The kind of work you do will involve members of the community with whom you are working. You may be building or repairing homes, tutoring children, visiting the elderly, tutoring at a GED center, serving meals at a soup kitchen, or working in an orphanage. You will have a chance to work and talk side by side with the people living in the village or city. You may have the opportunity to listen to the stories of the people, to learn about their culture, or get a tour of the city in which they live. Some of these sites focus on education and cultural exchange.
Please read the descriptions of each of the sites and choose five in order of your preference. Check out the listing of service sites for more information.
*** If you are placed on an international mission experience and do not have a passport, please apply for a passport as soon as possible.
