Middle East: School Guidance Counselor


Do you have a passion for missionary kids and other third culture kids (children who have spent a significant number of developmental years in a culture different from their parents’ culture)? A guidance counselor is needed at a Christian international school in the Middle East, to assist these children in processing their cross-cultural lives and educational experiences.


It is preferred that applicants have a degree in clinical counseling and the ability to work with the special needs of teens and children through a variety of techniques. Applicants should have a strong biblical foundation with a vibrant and growing relationship with Christ and an active prayer life.

Language Requirements

Must be fluent in English. Ability in other languages is helpful but not required since work will be with a variety of students from around the world.

Training Provided

If schedules allow, shadow the previous counselor.
