Responsibilities:

The Vision-Caster's goal would be to build relationships with youth during the time that they are here, and through these relationships, determine two or three concrete, long-term programs implement in the lives of Bengali youth. The Vision-Caster will be accountable to the SIM team leader during his/her stay in Bangladesh. The team leader will be available to give guidance and input to the Vison-Caster throughout his/her stay in Bangladesh. At the end , the Vision-Caster will submit to the team leader a two- or three-page summary report of the work, including current findings and future recommendation for programs and/or additional research. Bengali youth love getting to know people from different cultures and countries. They are curious and inquisitive about anything foreign and eager to learn more and stretch their horizons. When not in school, young men and boys love staying active and playing sports. Young women and girls are extremely social within their gender group and take every opportunity they can to spend time with each other. We believe these are two good starting places to get to know youth and determine what are the best ways to reach them based on their passions and interests.

 

Ministry 2: CE- Evangelism/Outreach

Other Ministry Possibilities: There is a high likelihood that after spending two months building relationships with youth, you not only will come up with a plan to reach out to teens in Bangladesh, but you will want to be part of implementing this plan yourself. We would be more than happy to have you on the long term team with the rest of us that have caught the "Bangladesh bug".

Future Plans: The first step is to have a short term Vision-Caster help develop a ministry outreach program. The second step is for a long term worker or team to implement the plan developed by the Vision-Caster (YOU!). The third step is to train a national Bengali to do the same. So that is two steps away and something to be considered in the future.

 

Note: This could also be filled by a team of 2-4. Outreach and ministry will be done to primarily the same gender due to cultural considerations. While youth are increasingly progressive, culturally appropriate clothing, particularly for women, will increase the effectiveness of relationship building.

Other Practical Notes: This position will require you to enter Bangladesh on a tourist visa. SIM Bangladesh can provide you with assistance in obtaining the required visa in your home country.
