Vision: 
TeachOvereas:Turkey is a branch of TeachOverseas.org. The vision of the organization is to "Share Christ's Love through Teaching". We place Christians in schools across Turkey and witness through excellent teaching and through building genuine friendships with neighbors, students and colleagues. Part of the vision of TeachOverseas:Turkey is to make ministry to the unreached more accessible. No teaching experience or knowledge of a foreign language is needed because we provide comprehensive pre-field training. Training covers teaching skills, cross-cultural adjustment, community building, and ministry.
Describe the types of ministry opportunities your agency will offer to Urbana 12 participants: 
TeachOverseas:Turkey has two programs. One is 6 weeks in the summer, and the other is a one school year contract that can be renewed each year. Our placements are in language centers, Universities or private K-12 schools all throughout the country. All participants must be committed Christians and native English speakers (or have native-like fluency). Yearlong teachers must also have a bachelor's degree, but it can be in any subject.
