In the last two years, Sicily has welcomed more than 350,000 refugees from a diverse range of countries and people groups. In fact, the European Union considers Italy to be the location receiving the highest rate of refugees at this time: 54 percent of all refugees entering Europe. Most of the refugees arriving on the island are young, ranging from 14-20 years old. Interns will offer assistance to refugees who have recently arrived, provide practical and immediate needs, host sports outreach events, take part in a food and clothing aid program and share the love of Jesus in the process. In addition, interns will assist in the development of a new ministry center in the city, which will create a hub of ministry activity and opportunity. If you are looking for a practical way to engage a large population of young refugees this summer, consider applying for the Italy team.
