Young Adults in Global Mission
For many years the ELCA provided a number of young adults the opportunity to grow in their faith and work hand-in-hand with our global neighbors through our Young Adults in Global Mission (YAGM) program.
Volunteers, who range in age from 21 to 29, take the plunge into a life-changing year-long journey in communities around the world. As they share their gifts of service, they also receive the gifts of their hosts' hospitality, engaging in relationships of mutuality, interdependence, solidarity and trust. To learn more about this program, click here.
Due to the pandemic, this ministry is currently on hold until future notice.
If you would like to contribute directly to any of the current YAGMs, please go to https://community.elca.org/yagm/give and choose their name from the drop down menu.
