About the English-Intensive Philippines Volunteer Position
In 2017 our English Intensive will be held in July/August.
English-Intensive is a short-term mission of 10+ days, with camps lasting 10 days. The English intensive is specifically for the children of East Asian pastors. It’s one of the best ways we know to reach the next generation for Christ and to encourage a deepening faith. By joining us as an English language teacher, you have the opportunity to:
*teach English in a cross-cultural environment. We use fun games and activities to teach campers conversational English.
*make deep, international friendships. We bond with campers and nurture those friendships over meals, through learning, and during one-on-one interviews.
*share Christ’s love. We demonstrate Christ’s love and share His hope through evening chapel times, testimonies, and small groups.
Your gifts and talents can be put to use on a team of people of all ages, 19 and over. Participants will need to raise an estimated $800 US (plus travel). The project fee includes the cost for: materials, curriculum, training, in-country costs, food, accommodations, insurance, and visas (where needed).
About English Camp The Philippines

All language services are provided with the understanding that the learning of English is part of a broader educational agenda which includes a spiritual and moral-ethical dimension.
We strongly encourage a full team of 5-10 individuals from one church or organization in North America or the UK to work alongside our partners. As an individual, we will add you to an already- formed team heading to the Philippines.
