World Horizons Gap Year - Turkey Placement

Turkey - support a ministry training programme, help run a coffee business and learn the language to bless the local community.

Our Gap Year programme starts with eight weeks
of training at our Centre for the Nations in
Llanelli, South Wales where you will learn
about topics such as working in a cross-
cultural context, team building and Biblical
principles. Through the training we want to
equip you to take on challenges, develop the
confidence to share your faith and grow in
serving intentionally.
As part of your training you will go on an
exciting five day mission trip trekking in the
Atlas Mountains of North Africa, where you will
gain an understanding of cultural challenges
and the skills needed to adapt.
Training
The Gap Year programme begins in September.
During the first eight weeks of your Gap Year,
you will live in a community setting at our
Centre for the Nations in Llanelli, South
Wales. As you prepare for your overseas
placement, you will explore subjects such as
working in a cross-cultural context, team
building and Biblical principles.
We also focus on practical preparation, placing
you in the local community to serve alongside a
church. This gives you the opportunity to put
into practice what you are learning and to
share Christís love through childrenís and
youth work, discipleship or street outreach.
Gap Year training continues until mid-November,
and finishes with a five day mission trip
trekking in the Atlas Mountains of North Africa
followed by personal reviews.
