Serving and Learning Together (SALT) is a year-long, cross-cultural service experience. Though SALT, Christian young adults from Canada and the U.S. 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:

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

Applications are accepted year-round, but only those received before February 15 are guaranteed to be considered for a placement in the same year. The earlier we receive your application, the greater your chances of being placed.

We start the placement process each January and finish in late May.

SALTers do not apply to specific assignment or location, but to the SALT program as a whole. However, when completing the application form, we will ask you to list your top assignment preferences and/or locations. More information about the placement process can be found here: https://mcc.org/get-involved/serve/volunteer/salt/apply

In some cases SALT can be used as an internship or practicum; however you must discuss this with the SALT coordinator during the placement process to make sure MCC is able to meet the requirements of your educational institution. It is up to you to ensure that SALT meets the requirements of your program before leaving on assignment and all arrangements must be finalized before departing for assignment.
