Project 5.6

– Turkey –


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.


Turkey is a land where East meets West. It’s a mix of Asian and European influence, with great food, amazing history, and some of the most inviting people you’ll ever meet. While in Turkey with Project 5.6 you’ll work with our university partners teaching Turkish students and assisting in the classroom with adult learners. You’ll also have the opportunity to see some of the most fascinating historic locations in the world, from the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul to Ephesus and Colossae. Did we mention you’ll get to enjoy real Turkish Delight? There is no way you’ll leave Turkey without finding something to love in this amazing country.

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’ll 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.
