The Silk Road Global Program takes place in Central Asia. You’ll have an opportunity to be immersed in another culture and make local friends. After an orientation in-country, your team will assist with an English language program for local students.  Free time is spent practicing English with the local students, learning about the local culture and history, and exploring the surrounding region together. As you build cross-cultural friendships, you'll have natural opportunities to share your story, learn someone else's, and talk about the deepest parts of life, sharing the reason for your hope.

If you can be flexible and are eager to live life with others, to sit and listen to them, to enjoy their food and music, this is the program for you! 

Application deadline is March 15.
