This summer, make a direct positive change in the Syrian refugee crisis. As you teach in Jordan, your classroom will become a sanctuary of safety and routine for your young students who come from a past filled with resettlement.


Right now, there are over 1 million displaced Syrians that reside in Jordan and the majority of your students this summer will come from broken families forced to flee from the crisis. After a week of training in Turkey, you and your team will travel to your teaching location near the Syrian border in Jordan. For three weeks, you will teach English to children in a school that was started by a local fellowship.

Class time will include English time, crafts, games, and recess and will run Monday through Thursday. Weekends will be used for sightseeing in Jordan, catching up on rest, lesson planning, and spending time in fellowship with your team.
