Apply a Lifetime of Experience.
For your entire career, you have been honing the ability to lead teams, build relationships, organize efforts, ensure accountability, and accomplish substantial objectives. Now you can use these skills to give back and build the Lord’s kingdom.
The same skills that helped you thrive professionally are similarly crucial for the work humanitarian missionaries do.
You already have many of the skills and attributes we need:
- Build relationships with government and community leaders, non-profits, beneficiaries, and Church members.
- Understand the breadth of help the Church offers and identify which best serve the needs of identified communities and individuals.
- Structure projects to maximize chance of achieving intended results.
- Monitor progress to ensure promised work is delivered on time and at high quality.
- Work in new countries and with new cultures.
Contributing to the Work of Salvation and Exaltation
“Caring for those in need” is one of the four divinely appointed responsibilities members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints have. (General Handbook 1.2)
Over your life, you have likely fulfilled this responsibility in many ways: caring for your family, serving in callings, ministering to your fellow brothers and sisters, volunteering, and many individual acts of kindness at home, work, and in your community.
As a humanitarian missionary, your ability to care for those in need is amplified to a new level as you combine your passion to help with the unique and highly applicable skills developed over the course of your career.
