ELCA YAGM Applications Open
Dec 3, 2020 - Jan 15, 2021
The ELCA Young Adults in Global Mission (YAGM) program invites ELCA young adults ages 21-29 into a transformative, year-long journey in international service. As they offer themselves in service, ELCA young adults are shaped by the witness of our global neighbors. They share in the journeys of companion churches and organizations in one of nine countries around the world.
Young adults serve in the spirit of accompaniment, walking alongside global companions in a manner that practices mutuality, interdependence and solidarity. Areas of service include, but are not limited to, health and development, congregational ministry, human rights, education, homelessness, addiction recovery, women’s issues and children and youth. All site placements provide opportunities for young adults to confront issues of wealth and poverty, racial privilege, economic disparity and globalization, all through the lens of faith.
Due to the pandemic, YAGM plans to resume sending volunteers next year in August 2021. As YAGM continues to monitor the COVID-19 situation and they communicate with their global companions, please know that the list of country programs for the 2021-2022 service year may change. Applications will be accepted from Nov. 1, 2020 to Jan. 15, 2021. Learn more and apply.
