We are happy to take applications from any citizenship. Due to some visa problems we may not be able to take volunteers from certain countries.
After you have submitted your application, medical form, references and background check all come back, we will let you know.
Most projects are either $1050 or $1250 U.S. dollars plus the cost of airfare to and from your project location.
Once it has been established that an individual or a team are approved, we open up an account number with GEM head office. We will then send a receipting slip that needs be sent to all those that want to support you. This slip has to go in with the donation so that we know who it is for and what account it goes into. We strongly recommend that a person going on a project ask family, friends and churches to support them. This is a way of having others participate in your missions’ team and in the bigger picture of what God is doing in Europe. It is usually a guaranteed way of have people also pray for you while you are gone.
After you have been accepted & approved, someone from Euroteam will let you know when to buy your tickets.
Please email us at euroteam@gemission.org and we will respond as soon as we are able. If you prefer to call, please call +49 (0) 7626 974 570. We are open Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm Central European Time *When calling from outside of Germany, do not include the (0) *
No, the cost does not include flights due to volunteers coming from various countries and locations.
No, GEM does not help in purchasing tickets. We are happy to provide recommendations as there are special travel agencies who deal with non-profit organizations.
This depends on the type of project and to what country. We have many trips that someone under 18 can join, but they will either need a parent or a guardian with them. On refugee projects all team members have to be above 18, there are no exceptions.
Sometimes we have projects that can take a family. Please contact our office to see about possibilities.
Funds are due a month before departure trip.
