Mongolia, referred to as the “Land of Eternally Blue Sky”

Mongolia

Mongolia is an Asian country that borders Russia and China and is home to just over 3 million people. It is often referred to as the “Land of Eternally Blue Sky” because it has, on average, 250 sunny days each year. Each year, our teams have the privilege of working both in the city and in more rural areas of Mongolia working alongside Mongolian colleagues and educating the country’s future leaders.

Known for its beautiful countryside, Mongolia is a country filled with students who want to further their English skills and know more about their teachers. This opportunity is perfect for the adventurous and outdoorsy type!

The

Details

Mongolia is a beautiful country, with rolling hills and roaring rivers. It is a perfect fit for the adventurous type. Set in the rural Mongolian countryside, you and your team will teach English to middle school and high school students at a summer camp. The summer camp setting provides a unique opportunity to get to know your students in the classroom, as well as build relationships with them during meals, games, and free time.

This program is very high energy and will consist of sports, skits, and other outdoor activities. Evenings are often spent planning for the next day of lessons, enjoying intentional community with your team, and resting.

A unique part of this program is that participants get to experience Mongolia’s traditional festival known as Naadam. Mongolian wrestling, horse racing, and archery are the main events of the festival.
