Feature article: International Study Abroad Program!
The Doulos Study Abroad Program is growing! Every year we select high school students to study for a semester in the US at one of our partner schools. While studying and living with an American host-family, our students have the opportunity to experience a new culture, practice their English, further their education, and immerse themselves in a new culture.
We are currently partnered with two mission-minded schools in the US that have helped make these opportunities possible for our students: CVCA in Cuyahoga, Ohio (www.cvcroyals.com) and The Rock School in Gainesville, Florida (www.rocklions.com.) We currently have an American student studying at Doulos through the study abroad program. Lily Mathes is a high school sophomore from CVCA. She plays soccer and lives with two other Doulos students and their family.
For this upcoming Fall semester, we’ve selected four high-achieving students: Alejandra, Michelle, Elisabeth and Jumel. All student-applicants go through a thorough application process and interview with Doulos teachers and staff. The students chosen possess skills that make them stand out and show promise that they will succeed in the study abroad program. We are thrilled about the new adventure our students are about to embark on and we cannot wait to see how they thrive.
There are multiple ways you can get involved in our study abroad program. You can pray for our students, the schools they attend, the families they are staying with, and students’ families back in the DR as they transition into a season without their child home with them. If you live near one of our partner schools, you can host one of our students. Another way you can support our students is financially . Each study abroad student is responsible for raising $3,000. If you feel led to support them financially DONATE HERE. All support is greatly needed and appreciated.
