The ELCA’s Young Adults in Global Mission program is a one-year, international service-learning and faith-formation opportunity in churches and social service ministries for young adults, ages 21-29.

Update: While YAGM will not be sending volunteers for the 2020-21 program year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we plan to resume sending volunteers next year in August 2021. Applications will be open from Nov. 1, 2020, to Jan. 15, 2021

Nine Young Adults from our synod served in their respective sites until they were called home due to COVID-19. Prayers for all those who were unable to finish serving.
