liberty in north korea: become a nomad


Have you got what it takes to be a Nomad? Liberty in North Korea (LiNK) is looking for outgoing, resourceful and passionate individuals to be Nomads for North Korea, touring the country and educating young people about the country's humanitarian crisis. Watch this video to hear from those who have done it themselves:



Here's some more information:
"Nomads are different; everything is done in a wild way."

Once on board, you'll make your entrance in traditional wild fashion – living at the Nomad house and LiNK office, making your tour a reality by booking your route solid. You'll also get a crash course on North Korea, meet other trailblazers and discover a new family and part of yourself. You'll then pack your van with LiNK merchandise before you go out to incite a generation to rise up and investigate this issue for themselves. Tour is another story. One adventure will turn into another as you get a country excited about what they can do, turning that fire into something that will spread. The road won't be without bumps as you grow, but you will look back in appreciation and marvel.

The Nomadship is a three month commitment, January 24th is the start date and the tentative end date will be May 20th. Travel dates are late February till early May. Housing will be provided during training, and on the road with your "contacts" who will soon become new friends. We’ll give you a packet to help you raise your food and living stipend prior to your Nomadship. With this note* If these dates conflict with your school end date please email jobs@linkglobal.org.
I'm told that LiNK recently received funding to expand its tour program in the U.S. and Canada. This is an amazing opportunity to educate more people about the North Korean crisis. The deadline to apply was November 30, but I know for a fact that they're still in need for more Nomads. The position starts on January 24. For more information, visit the LiNK website here.
