What is SALT?

Serving and Learning Together (SALT) is a year-long, cross-cultural service experience. Though SALT, Christian young adults from the U.S. and Canada serve internationally in a wide variety of positions in fields like education, agriculture, health care, information technology, peace and more!

During their assignments SALTers are immersed in another culture, living with host families or communal settings such as dormitories or teacher housing in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin and Central America and the Middle East.

By living and serving in a new setting, SALTers

  • Experience personal, professional and spiritual growth
  • Help foster international goodwill and understanding
  • Gain personal experience with, and commitment to, the global church
