Opportunities

Then I heard a voice from the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?" And I said, "Here am I. Send me."

Isaiah 10:14-15

Are you ready to GO? We believe in bringing together excellent people from all life stages, walks of life, and backgrounds to help the oppressed. We serve across 6 continents and over 30 countries with a simple but powerful goal: to see lives and communities transformed by the power of God. Come work with us!

There are three ways to serve with ITeams:

  • Long-term (two or more years)
  • Mid-term (nine months to two years)
  • Short-term (up to eight months)

Featured Opportunities

Long-Term: Community Health Workers // Rockwood (Portland), Oregon

Do you desire to work with immigrants and help them adjust to their new life?

We are looking for someone to help immigrants adjust to life in the United States. Some immigrants find that their health deteriorates as food access issues change their daily diet and transportation on foot to services is unrealistic. You will help residents learn healthy living practices in a new culture and prevent chronic conditions later in life. You will work with new arrivals as well as long-term residents. 

Mid-Term: ESL Teacher (6-month minimum) // Dzaleka Refugee Camp, Malawi

The Dzaleka refugee camp in central Malawi is home to roughly 18,000 refugees of bloody conflicts and oppression in nations like Rwanda, the DRC, and Congo. As these individuals and families seek to rebuild their lives, English can prove to be an invaluable tool.

We are seeking a certified ESL teacher to help design and administer an English course for refugees in the Dzaleka camp. The ideal candidate will be a resourceful self-starter with an ability to lead the project and creatively identify cost-effective means of teaching the material. Extensive teaching experience is not required, however, ESL certification is. The ESL course will last six months, however, interested candidates are encouraged to stay for additional 6 month periods to continue teaching additional courses continuing on a rolling basis.

Short-Term: Refugee Worker (6 weeks to 3 months) // Athens, Greece

There are over 1 million refugees residing in the greater Athens area. Many come fleeing conflict and oppression, some looking for greater opportunities in Europe and beyond. All face great need, but in it’s midst, many are open to the truth of Jesus!

We work alongside local churches and partners to help meet both spiritual and physical needs of people in search of a home. Through food distributions, English classes, home visits, Bible studies, and much more we are helping refugees in Athens find comfort and the love of Christ. Come join our team for a few weeks or a few months and be a part of transformation!
