What is Go Slo?

Go Slo is a collaborative project between ZVEŠ Slovenia and AFES Australia to assist Christian students from all over the world to come to Slovenia and study, while helping fellow students and friends to think further about the claims of Jesus in the Bible. We are hoping this will give students the opportunity to have a taste of living overseas as a Christian, as well as growing in their own faith and understanding. At the same time ZVEŠ is greatly enriched through the involvement of these students!

What will you do?

Go Slo isn't a discipleship program in the traditional sense. We won't force you to do a certain amount of work for us. Instead, it's an opportunity for you to get involved, at whatever level you like, with a Christian student group in another country. Whatever your area of expertise and comfort zone, we can find somewhere for you to fit in - from leading a Bible discussion group to lending a spare hand; from on-the-street questionnaires to filming our events; from helping update our facebook to attending our meetings; or even cooking pancakes for a party!

What will we do?

Being a small group, we are prepared to tailor support to individual needs. As such, we will offer whatever levels of support and training we can to help you fit in best. To find out more about the staff of ZVEŠ - who we are and what we're like, check out our website. If you are still reading at this point, well done! To find out more, the Stories page tells the experiences of some people who have already come, or you can read Christine's 5 Steps to GO SLO.

Stories Here are some stories and interviews from people who have been on the Go Slo project in the past, reflecting on their experiences.

Contact We really want to encourage you to go for it.

That said, the process for applying to study here might look different for each country, and we don't know everything! But, if you do contact us to ask for help and advice, we would be pleased to help you the best we can.
