This school is called CrossBorders DTS because we cooperate with YWAM Norway and YWAM Russia. Lecture phase will be held mainly in Rovaniemi. However, we will be crossing cultural, geographical and the state borders of our neighbouring countries already during the lecture phase. After the lecture phase there will be a 8 to 12 weeks outreach phase that is also a part of the DTS. Outreach locations are usually further abroad but exact locations will differ in each DTS.
Lecture phase dates: Begins in autumn 2020
Outreach dates: Ends in spring 2021
