About Beyond Borders Lesvos Educational Project
Since 2015 over a million refugees have flooded into Greece, thousands having boarded dingy boats in Turkey, risking their lives attempting to reach Lesvos, one of the main entry points into Europe. While Lesvos was initially thought of as a "transit stop", the reality is that refugees are remaining on Lesvos for indefinite periods of time and there are no educational opportunities for refugee children.
Beyond Borders Lesvos will develop and implement educational, play-based, hands-on and therapeutically-informed learning and recreational programming to children and youth on Lesvos.
We seek to provide for the overall well-being of refugee children and youth by attending to their psychological, social, emotional, educational, and spiritual needs.
We greatly value persons with a heart to serve refugees and experience in education, counselling, youth work, administration, development. We are looking for people with a pioneer spirit, incredible flexibility, and initiative.
