We welcome all types of teams (churches, universities, families, etc.) to serve for two to three weeks at any point during the year. Teams of up to eight people have the privilege of living and serving at an ELI training center in one of two villages in Western Kenya.
Internships offer a unique setting for individuals to experience Kenya and gain a new perspective on life by living and serving alongside Kenyans for a short period of time, slightly longer than the typical team trip. Interns can live in Kenya for one to two months, serving primarily in the Children’s Homes and at the training centers. An internship is a learner-focused experience oriented toward the young single adult who desires to venture out into the world and explore ministry opportunities. Internships are generally served during the months of June-August but are not limited to that time period. Applications for internships are accepted at least five months before anticipated service begins.
Professional Volunteers (PV)
A professional volunteer is someone who has life and work experience that lends itself towards more focused ministry for an extended period of time (three months or more). From time to time, we have a need for individuals who can fill a special short-term gap in our organization. A PV has a particular skill set that allows them to facilitate, guide or initiate significant activities that bring current ministries to a higher level. PVs come alongside national leaders and career missionaries to help accomplish an identified goal. Areas where PVs might serve include primary healthcare, teaching at an ELI primary or middle school for a term, agricultural instructor and community development and/or appropriate technology projects. Applications for PVs are accepted throughout the year and must be submitted at least six months before anticipated service begins.

** We are currently accepting applications for service anytime during 2015-2016.
