Global Director Training

Global Director Training prepares both veteran and new Global Program directors alike to lead immersive international short-term programs. Participants are provided with tools, resources, and perspectives to effectively lead a team and partner with IFES. Join us in Mexico City, for Global Directors Training.

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. 

 Some of the topics covered include:

  • Spiritual preparation
  • Designing a program
  • Apologetic for global engagement
  • Team dynamics
  • Orientation and debriefing for your students
  • Student application, selection, and fundraising
  • Budgets and finances
  • Risk and crisis management

Global Director Training will take place Tuesday, November 18th through Saturday, November 23rd, 2024 in Mexico City. Costs are approximately $375 plus airfare. Email the Global Programs office with any questions. Plan to arrive before 3:00 pm on January 30th and leave after 2:00 pm on February 3rd. Please make sure you have a valid passport prior to booking your travel.

Register is due by September 30th.
