This pandemic season has impacted many things, including international travel and our Global Programs. However, we still value global engagement and connecting with our sister IFES movements. Global Programs have expanded to include virtual programs. Whether you are thinking of leading taking a team overseas this summer or interested in what a virtual GP could look like, take a few days to learn the values of Global Programs, and the essentials to directing . Remember that any time an InterVarsity staff or volunteer travels with a student or group of students outside of the United States, it is considered a Global Program. Training is required if you are a first-time director and are leading a program outside the United States, especially if it is more than two weeks long.
Many topics will be covered:
- Apologetic for global engagement
- Team dynamics
- Orientation and debriefing for your students
- Designing a program
- Student application, selection, and fundraising
- Spiritual preparation
- Budgets and finances
- Risk and crisis management
Global Director Training will take place Tuesday, January 26th through Friday, January 29th, 2021 and will be virtual. Costs are approximately $75. Please email the Global Programs office with any questions.
Please Register by January 22.
