Beyond Borders Lesvos
With war, conflict, and persecution on the rise globally, the number of displaced people around the globe is also on the rise. An estimated 68.5 million people have been forced to flee from their homes in recent years. In our work on the island of Lesvos, we provide instruction in English language, numeracy, and the arts for children and adults. Volunteers serve in rotations of three months on the island – beginning in January, April, and September – and have the option to serve in other Beyond Borders placements for the alternating three months.
