At Students International, our ultimate vision is to see students and the communities they serve transformed into the likeness of Christ and discover their true calling. Students International focuses on short-term missions that help without hurting, by placing our students with long-term missionaries who are fully integrated into the community and who aren’t taking jobs away from local laborers.
Bringing students and the poor together cross-culturally, to encounter God, share the Good News, disciple and serve others in occupational ministries.
What does this mean?
We change the lives of students and the poor by taking students to foreign countries to do projects and service with the poor that are focused on bringing people closer to Christ.
To see students and the poor transformed into the likeness of Christ and discover their true calling.
What does this mean?
As a result of our mission, we see students and the poor have significant experiences with God, discover why He created them and understand what He wants them to do with their gifts, capabilities and interests.
