Yes! Here's how it'd work: In many cases, it is possible to re-arrange the timing of your final exams to enable you to attend GoWeek and so we will help you work with your professors to make the arrangements in order to attend the most important parts of GoWeek (Tue or Wed).
You don't have to be a graduating university senior to apply. GoCorps is a pathway designed for singles in their 20s. University graduates or those with a combination of work experience and/or education equivalent to a university degree between the ages of 20-29 may apply.
You will have the opportunity to serve in some of the least reached places of the world, learn skill sets that include language acquisition, cultural sensitivity, leadership development, multi-cultural teamwork and living missionally. Further benefits of GoCorps service include:
>> An expedited process to go from application to overseas in less than seven months (versus the average of 18-24 months)
>> A single application form that works for all partnering organizations
>> Student loan forgiveness of $5000
GoCorps is for young adults in their 20s.
For each of the GoCorps tracks of service, your motivation, commitment to service, passion for Christ and a posture of humility are the primary requirements. Previous missions and cross cultural experience or Christian service is helpful. Teamwork, flexibility, and a positive attitude are all important for success overseas. GoCorps offers ten different tracks through which you could use your gifts and abilities to serve globally:
- University Outreach
Absolutely. All Goers participate in GoCorps Orientation Week (GoWeek) as their first step toward going overseas after they've received their overseas placement assignment. This is where you will receive training in raising your funds and your sending team. You will also receive additional location and track specific training through your sending organization. Once on the field, each GoCorps Goer will receive ongoing training throughout their two years of service.
In order to apply for a GoCorps placement, you must:
1. Be between the ages of 21-30
2. Have either:
A. A bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university OR
B. Work and/or education experience that equip you for the track of service you area applying for
