Can you imagine leaders from all over the world receiving good inputs, having fellowship and fun, having broader work team discussions, small task team meetings?
ITL Work Team annually connects alumni as emerging leaders from about 30 nations who plan, work, pray, and discern together on various jobs and tools on which they continue to work, develop and implement. Its more than only a meeting, WE ARE A FAMILY, we love to serve and we serve to love.Except for the primary purpose of work, participants also encourage one another and personally invest into, interact and serve the class participating in ALICT that year.
What we do
As alumni gather we come together for the great task, the development of powerful tools, products and processes that can impact and transform lives in all our diverse contexts.
Occurring once a year lifelong friendships and ministry partnerships are made. God is Good and weâ€™ve witnessed the impact in many lives that these emerging leaders have worked with.
- Interviews and research and the start of writing curricula for young people starting in business for young people in rural areas combining farming, business and discipleship
- Support of alumni in recruitment was increased
- The selection team process was improved (and technology used to serve this)
- Alumni fundraised and donated money to help ALICT empower more people
- XTeam training was introduced and happened in Rio and Antananarivo and again in Nairobi
- Alumni made friends and helped each other across countries and regions
Being part of the Work team was just an honor for me. Including definitely the blessing to still be able to meet some of our classmates and our big family around the world, this week was like a refreshment for the ears and the eyes, the mind and the heart; to remember that somewhere around
I experienced enjoyment of being a part of my team however, I also experienced with strong personality with our group leader .I have learn about scrum method which very useful and effective in work team. I wish we could have more time to work together, to complete the work before we leave.
To me the work team was a convergence of friendships, experiences, competencies, passions, shared visions and callings from all over the world so as to come up with practical, contextually applicable and sustainable ideas on how to collectively contribute to the Kingdom and impact the world towards building healthier communities and winning more souls.
It was fantastic to see people from so many different ALICT classes working together in unity to give back to ALICT because they had been so blessed. What other program has alumni traveling from around the world at their own expense to WORK to promote and improve the experience for all students past and future.
