Description/Responsibilities: 
GoCorps is an on-ramp for Christian twenty-somethings to use their degree globally for two years. We mobilize Goers to serve using their skill-sets and interests among the least reached and those in extreme poverty through ten tracks of service: Agriculture-Environment, Business-Leadership, Compassion-Justice, Engineering, Media-Arts, Medical, Sports, Storying-Linguistics, Teaching and University Outreach. GoCorps partners with leading missions organizations. Together we work to address the common barriers that often keep recent grads from serving overseas. We offer loan forgiveness, a 6 month launch window and all organizations use one application form and one website. GoCorps provides you the opportunity to use your degree and integrate your faith in a way that allows you to gain global work experience, learn a new language and culture and serve those with the greatest need of the gospel.
