  • Launch (previously SILA Summer School) is a four-week intensive course held in January and February each year (except for 2021, when it will be 14 June — 9 July). It equips you for any kind of cross-cultural work with skills in language learning and cultural awareness which will be valuable whether or not you end up serving in a mission organisation.
  • Short-term experiences longer than a month may be available – contact the Wycliffe representative in your state if you would like to discuss this option.

Volunteer at Wycliffe Australia

Wycliffe Australia has been able to ‘punch above its weight’ in its contribution to Bible translation because of volunteers. Even the mud bricks that form the National Centre buildings were made by volunteer young people and the whole centre has been built by volunteers.

Volunteering opportunities can take the form of casual vacancies, terms of up to two years, or joining a work team.


We currently offer two internships which give you the opportunity to try out cross-cultural ministry and determine whether it is for you: (1) Project Video internship (2) MTS-Wycliffe apprenticeship
