Global Education & Care Orientation


June 23-28, 2024

Orlando, FL

GECO is preparation for educators and caregivers (i.e. teachers, education coordinators, tutors, boarding home parents & youth workers) to work with missionary kids / third culture kids, as well as anyone wanting to find out more about working with MKs. Use your training and experiences with kids and apply it to a new culture context and demographic of students. Activities include worship, class time, interactive activities, simulations, and small groups. Meals allow for added relationship building & discussion times.

Some of the topics covered:

"I am loving Mexico and my kids.  I miss my family and friends -- which is really the only costly thing for me.  I am blessed.  I think of you guys at GECO often and how well I think I was prepared. That is still in my top 3 conferences.  And it is still probably the one I learned the most from." 
         Peggy, a teacher in Mexico

Costs, which includes the orientation, room and board are as follows: 

Each participant is responsible to handle their own travel to and from Orlando. 

Listen to how Hannah became interested in teaching and Bible translation.
