Trained Counselor

Thailand

Purpose

Imagine Thailand exists to build strong communities, with and through local communities and people. We believe in the capacity of youth, university students and skilled professionals to create a new future for communities in need. We engage in community development initiatives, building bridges between the local church and local community. Trained counselors are needed to provide workshops in schools and teacher training in a traumatized community.

Skills

Professional training in counseling an asset. Experience working with traumatized communities and ability to facilitate training workshops for children and adults required. Flexibility, independence and cultural adaptation expected. A person with the ability to build friendships across cultural and language barriers would be able to serve the team effectively.

 

This opportunity is available for volunteers and those desiring to serve long-term (3-month min for volunteers, up to long-term).

Support

The on-field team consists of internationals, Thai and Burmese nationals. There is a Thai national director in each of the 4 regions. Depending on location, you will be in regular connection with your area team for staff meetings and devotions. We will provide help setting up accommodations and preparing for cultural adjustment with a 1-2 week on-boarding for ministry, including orientation to the local community and amenities.

 

Our International Missions team will walk with you along the way – from application to deployment. Training, administrative support and mission coaching will be provided, along with assistance for promotional and fundraising efforts.
