    Short assignments – up and away!

    Take three months out to plunge into a project run by one of Mission 21's partner institutions, and gain enriching insights into social, cultural and religious facets of your host country.

    On a short assignment, you'll discover what a foreign country is really like – away from the tourist hotspots. Are you open to new challenges (which could also be in a church context), are you between 18 and 22 years old, and do you speak adequate English? If so, please contact us. We arrange joint preparatory and debriefing weekends to discuss your assignment.
