Frequently Asked Questions
You can serve for a summer or for a year. Summer placements will start in June; yearlong sites start at various times, from summer to early fall.
Are you a committed Christian between the ages of 18 and 25? Are you flexible, patient, and open minded? Do you have a desire to learn from and with others? Do you have the courage to try new things, make mistakes, and try again? If you can answer those questions with a “yes,” then you’re just the sort of person we’re looking for.

Our office can help you through the process of deferring your student loans during your time of service.
