Project 5.6 is an intense 6-month adventure that takes you and your team to 5 different countries. This experience is unlike any other and will open your eyes to the various work that ELIC teachers do across the globe. Every experience is customized and unique based on the needs and experience of the team.
The Middle East is more than what we see on the news. Traveling to Jordan will give you the chance to experience what life is like firsthand in this amazingly complex region. While in Jordan with Project 5.6 you’ll provide education to the refugee community sheltering in Jordan. You'll also meet students and their families, putting faces and names to a crisis whose scale and distance from our homes makes it hard to fully understand. One thing is certain: you will not leave Jordan without having been deeply impacted by its deep sense of hospitality and the challenges the refugee community faces as they seek to rebuild their lives.
Project 5.6 is without a doubt one of the coolest and most memorable experiences you can have. If you're having a difficult time deciding which country would fit you best, you should experience multiple countries and gain a more clear direction for what's next in life. In each country, you will join our local, long-term teams as they transform campuses, cities, and regions through education, sports, leadership development, refugee work, and more.
Project 5.6 is no ordinary journey. It’s truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. If you’ve got six months and you want to experience something that very few people ever will, don’t wait; join us on this adventure now.
