Actors portray the role of a non-member who is interested in learning more about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Missionaries may teach you a number of times, depending on the language, and you will progress through this process. Primarily, Actors should be focused on providing realistic, positive experiences for missionaries to apply their purpose.
There are two options for actor positions. Please see below for details on these positions.
Long-term language actors are hired on a semester basis and can expect 12-20 hours per week. They are expected to meet the shift requirements and attend a weekly training meeting. We prefer native language speakers in these positions, but all are welcome to apply.
English, French, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Portuguese, Spanish, Tagalog
Short-term language actors are hired on a semester basis and typically work 2-6 hours a week but only during times where missionaries learning that language are at the MTC. Speakers of these languages are more difficult to find and so scheduling is much more flexible.
