Do you have a heart for children? Do you want to reach out to children at risk and be used by God in this? During the Children at Risk school (CAR) you will get lecture from different people that have a lot of experience in the area of children at risk.
This CAR school has a special focus on refugee children. Next to the lectures you will have a local outreach for example at an asylum seeker centre, to put into practice what you have learned.
After the 3 months lecture phase there will be also a 3 months practical phase. There you will especially work with children and families who had to flee. This can be abroad. The aim is to give you the possibility to stay on location after this period for your potential internship.
The CAR school is 6 months and will start 10 january 2018. The school will only be in English!
If you have more questions, want more info or want to apply for the school, please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
“Learn to do right. Seek justice, encourage the oppressed, defend the cause of the fatherless, plead for the case of the widow.” Isaiah 1:17
Today, all over the world, children face risks we cannot imagine. Children are the most vulnerable group in any society. The focus of the Children at Risk School is on those who have been placed at risk due to factors such as war, disease, poverty, exploitation, abandonment, disability, and other forms of injustice. You will receive an overview of the needs of these children at risk.
Specific instruction is provided on issues relating to them such as HIV and AIDS, counselling, evangelism, God’s nature and character as mother and father, and other such topics allowing us to be advocates and see lasting change and true transformation in these children’s lives.
Topics that will be covered in the CAR school are:
- Project planning
- Trauma booklet
- Traumatized children
- Human trafficking
- Child development
- Community development
- Family ministries
