The mission of JAARS is to make Bible translation and language development possible, especially in the most remote and difficult places on earth. We do that by enabling locally appropriate and sustainable solutions in transportation, technology, media and training. We partner closely with SIL International, the organizations of the Wycliffe Global Alliance, and with other organizations locally and globally. JAARS has a 70-year history of innovation and excellence in supporting Bible translation around the world.

“The fellowship is a great opportunity to gain experience in one's chosen field and also experience life within a close-knit community.”

Outdoor and Multi-Generational Engagement Fellow

July 2021 - June 2022 Waxhaw, NC
“As someone interested in a career in missions, the 11-month JAARS Fellows program has allowed me to network with people and "get my foot in the door" of a well-known missions organization. I've gained valuable skills and professional experience, but the Fellows program is so much more than just a job. I have greatly benefited from the intentional mentoring, discipleship, and community that is built into the Fellows program!”
