Children’s Education

Use your teaching and educational leadership skills in Bible translation.

Missionaries need to know their kids are thriving.

Without educational opportunities available, many families serving overseas have to leave Bible translation work to provide for their children’s needs. Like you, we believe that providing quality education can help missionary kids and their families thrive. Wycliffe can connect you to a variety of education roles in traditional and non-traditional settings.

If you’re humble, generous and eager to embrace diversity across generations, cultures and backgrounds, you can use your skills in children’s education and school administration to impact the lives of missionary kids from around the world and move Bible translation work forward.

"Because of their multicultural experience, life experience, and education, [these students] are going to be leaders who are bridging different culture groups. … The kids that I teach will not just blend in and not make waves. They will be influential. It's a big legacy. ”

— Donna Smith, teacher

Together we translate hope.

At Wycliffe Bible Translators, we choose to venture together in unity and collaboration, building a purposeful community where you can belong. If you’re willing to be patient, persevering and flexible as you tackle challenging problems and navigate cross-cultural situations, you'll make an impact that ripples across the world.

Come make a difference in:

  • Teaching: Teachers serve missionaries and their children by ensuring access to English-based high-quality, accredited education in both traditional and non-traditional settings.
  • School administration: Principals, assistant principals and administrators offer guidance to teachers, parents and students as they help children thrive and grow into the people God wants them to be.
  • Boarding homes: Boarding home parents help care for students while their parents visit remote field locations by providing a safe, nurturing environment while they receive a consistent education at an international school.

God is on the move in the world! Ready to do your part?
