Are you looking for an opportunity to visit a new country and serve God? A gap year is the ideal opportunity for this as it opens the gates for a new experience. OM Albania offers two different options for a gap year, one in Durres and the second in Lushnje.

Start Date: January or August 
Commitment Length: 1-2 years (Full Time)

OM Albania offers two different gap year options. The first one is in Durres, the main port city of the country. In this field you would help the OM Albania headquarter office. Working here would involve publicity work, writing articles, taking pictures and potentially editing videos. This work is crucial for OM Albania as we desperately need someone to do this work as our field has no one who can do this. Additionally you could accompany short term teams that come, giving them an idea of what Albania is like.

The second option we have is in Lushnje. Lushnje is a small city not far from Durres. 14 years ago, OM Albania opened the Emanuel center, a center for Sinti and Roma children. In Albania Sinti and Roma are discriminated against, they have a hard time finding jobs, or going to school and live in poverty. When you work here you would support the local OM team helping with the different meetings and house visits. This is a great opportunity to help the people in need, the people that live in poverty.
