This internship is specifically geared towards European interns. You will be organizing and leading evangelistic “European camps" for high school and university-age students. Summer camps are a vital tool in bringing the gospel to the youth in a relevant and relaxed environment.
The first month of the internship includes: a week of training in Czech Republic, visiting schools and traveling to different youth groups in Ukraine to promote and prepare for camps. In addition, you will participate in a variety of local youth ministry activities. At camp you will work with European short-term teams and Ukrainian leaders in various aspects. For example: workshops, relationship building, evening program, giving testimonies and connecting youth to the local church.
Throughout the summer you will experience a balance of evangelism, discipleship and leadership training of Ukrainian students and youth leaders. This is a high-energy ministry that requires a love for students. Be prepared for a busy and stretching schedule that will be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life!
