Applications for the ELCA’s Young Adults in Global Mission (YAGM) program are now open for this yearlong journey abroad.
If you know young adults age 21 to 29, this is the time to reach out. Encourage them to apply for YAGM. Talk to them personally about what this opportunity will mean for their faith, identity, career and understanding of God’s work in the world.
Through YAGM, young adults will learn what it means to serve in a spirit of accompaniment as they walk alongside global church companions. They’ll become immersed in a new community and form deep relationships. And they’ll confront issues of wealth and poverty, racial privilege, gender privilege, economic disparity and globalization, all through the lens of faith. Learn more at ELCA.org/ YAGM.
Don’t wait — spread the word now! Applications will be open until Feb. 15, 2020.
