About the WWW Program

Founded in 2001, WWW has sent 400 university students abroad to work under experienced mentors.  Viewed as more than a campaign but less than a long-term commitment, WWW is designed to give students a chance to deeply experience missions while working under the oversight of spiritual mentors.  Most students live with their missionary hosts or local families for two months during the summer. Many students have opted to participate in more than just a summer internship, staying on the field for up to two years.

WWW works to place students in the place that best fits their spiritual gifts, experiences and future life goals.  Assignments are determined via conversation and prayer. Whatever your situation, WWW has an option for you.
