2020 East Asia Special Needs Classroom 1

May 29 2020 - Jun 7 2020


About the Journey

East Asia covers nearly thirty percent of the Asian continent. It’s rich in history and is home to some of the largest cities in the world. Although this country is experiencing tremendous economic and urban growth, there’s still a need to serve.

We’re looking to build a spirited team that has a heart for children, teens, and young adults with special needs. Teaching experience and/or experience caring for those with special needs is a plus but is not required. The team will work alongside our partner who, in conjunction with local authorities, leads a humanitarian effort to serve those who cannot care for themselves. 

From Atlanta, the team will fly to East Asia and serve in both an orphanage and another location closer to the city center. Team members will work with local teachers to serve in a classroom environment where they’ll help with activities, games, crafts, and therapy.  

Your team will work together to create and implement a unique curriculum that includes innovative teaching and therapy practices. Since the teachers have no formal special needs training, your service meets a critical need.  

Toward the end of the week, you’ll have ample time for touring and sightseeing. 

This trip is incredibly rewarding, but it’s also challenging. If you’re ready to step outside of your comfort zone and share your love and attention with these special needs students and teachers, apply now! 

A visa is REQUIRED for entry, and is the responsibility of the team member.
