Summer or Long-Term Missioner

Posted on:
Program Timing: Ongoing / Location: Honduras

Option 1: Long-term Service Program – 27 months – Spanish Helpful, not Required

August 1st, 2024 – December 4th, 2025

Our long term program participants (“misioneros” y “misioneras”) commit to 16 months with our mission, starting with language school in August of each year. Most work in some capacity in our K-9 school as English, special education, and/or kindergarten teachers, while medical professionals work alongside our medical staff at our on-site clinic. We also have needs for those with specialized skills including engineering and construction. All of our misionero/as also serve in a variety of capacities to keep our organization running and thriving, including working with our after-school and vocational training/preparation programs. All partake in the faith life of our community and walk alongside our kids. We welcome individuals and families. 

Applications for our long-term service program are accepted on a rolling basis, with a priority deadline of Feb 15th. We’re still seeking Fall 2024 applicants.

Option 2: Summer Program – 10 weeks – Spanish Required

June 1st – August 8th, 2024

Our “summer vols” come down for 8-10 weeks over the summer and serve in many of the same capacities as above. They commonly step into teaching roles in our school and serve alongside our long-term volunteers. Some years we have space for someone to help out in our clinic as well. We’re also open to exploring other ideas if you have a specific skill set you’d like to share.

Applications for our summer program are due on Feb 15th and accepted on a rolling basis after that.

Option 3: Interested, but on a different timeline?
