Our Rescue Teams are an essential part of this movement. They work on their campuses and in their communities to change the narrative on North Korea and raise crucial funds for Refugee Rescues. Are you ready to be a world changer? Here are 10 reasons why you should start a Rescue Team!
Go beyond the political conversation in the news and learn about the 24 million people in North Korea who are changing their country from the bottom up. As part of a Rescue Team, you will have access to resources to learn more about the challenges the North Korean people face and how you can stand with them.
Create and develop a presence for LiNK in your community and demonstrate your abilities as a changemaker. Many of our interns and staff have started out in rescue teams. Notably, Esther Park initially led the UCLA Rescue Team before becoming a Nomad. After her time as a Nomad, she remained with us as a regional manager working with Nomads before moving on.
Find like-minded friends that can last a lifetime that will support not just the cause but you, too. Hamaila and Julian (pictured right) from the UT Austin Rescue Team are one of many examples of people who connected through a Rescue Team and then came to intern at HQ together, where they not only strengthened their bond but bonded with others in the LiNK family. Though no longer interns, they remain great support for each other and LiNK.
Become a part of something bigger. We have Rescue Teams all over the world, including in the UK, France, Mexico, Australia, Singapore, and more! Join thousands of world-changers to make a difference on one of the greatest challenges facing humanity today.
You will have easy access to HQ as part of a Rescue Team and get opportunities to work with our staff on this issue. Our Rescue Teams manager Sarah and her team will be with you every step of the way as you work toward your goals.
By leading a Rescue Team, you get to help change the narrative on North Korea and place people over politics. Most people only know North Korea through sensational headlines and its leadership and nuclear weapons. This is your opportunity to let them know of the bottom-up changes happening within the country.
100% of the funds raised by Rescue Teams go to our refugee rescues and resettlement assistance programs. Nearly 170 North Korean refugees have made the journey to safety and freedom thanks to the funds raised by Rescue Teams.
We believe the North Korean people will achieve their liberty in our lifetime. By becoming part of a Rescue Team, you will be a part of helping accelerate change.
