The Silk Road Program takes place in Central Asia. After an orientation in-country, your team will assist with leading an English language program for local students. You’ll have an opportunity to be immersed in another culture, staying with a local family and making local friends. You'll help to teach English classes while also learning about the local culture and history. Free time is spent practicing English with your students, learning local language and culture, sharing meals, and exploring the surrounding region together.

As you build deep cross-cultural friendships, you'll have natural opportunities to share your story, learn someone else's, and talk about the deepest parts of life. We're focused on planting and nourishing seeds, sometimes in slow-growing soil. You should come with a patient and long-term perspective, yet be prepared to share the reason of your hope when possible.

The program director will be announced and applications opened January 24, 2019.
