Education for Refugee Children
Stranded on Lesvos after escaping war and conflict, refugees are truly living in a hellish state of transit, where their dreams of building a new life are placed on hold for months and even years.
This summer we will be offering two educational day camps for refugee children—each three weeks long—where they can feel the fun of being kids again; where they can play, have fun, explore and learn, and ultimately be met with the abundant love of Christ.
Students will experience STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) exploration and simple experiments through which teachers can scaffold English language learning and foster community building. This will be delivered in a variety of informal contexts and settings from an outdoor playground environment to a classroom. Adaptability, the ability to work as a team player, and excellent relationship skills are critical. We are recruiting individuals experienced in teaching as well as those ready to love and serve refugees.
