Papua is the easternmost province of Indonesia, the fourth-largest nation in the world. Beyond its natural beauty and its richness in natural resources, Papua is one of the most culturally and linguistically diverse parts of the world, hosting approximately 275 languages from several language families. Yet, its real treasure is the welcoming and generous people. Despite its natural wealth, Papua has traditionally lacked other critical resources. Basic infrastructure, modern healthcare, and education are woefully absent, leaving many Papuans feeling marginalized.
The vision of our team is to educate servant leaders, a young generation that is not only highly qualified but, more importantly, fully grounded as followers of Christ. Our main program is to prepare students to study abroad. Our vision is that these students will return to Papua afterward and become the new generation of servant leaders in this part of Indonesia, addressing the needs of the area in governance, infrastructure, healthcare, education, the economy, and more.
This college preparation program includes English training, academic skills, spiritual formation, and identity building.
During their time in the program students live in dormitories.
Joining our team will provide individuals with the opportunity to make an impact on the young generation, which, in turn, will influence future generations. Living in a place like Papua demands a great deal of flexibility and adaptability.
Teachers get about six weeks of academic holidays (four weeks over Christmas and one week in spring and summer).
