A Short-term Volunteer Opportunity for Young Adults, Ages 18 to 30

The Global Justice Volunteers Program of the General Board of Global Ministries is a short-term service opportunity for young adults, ages 18 to 30. Participants are from all over the world and serve all over the world. Small teams of volunteers spend eight weeks during the months of June through August exploring the links between faith and social justice as they work with local grassroots organizations. Volunteers work alongside their host community to address critical issues such as HIV and AIDS, poverty, human trafficking, and migrants’ rights. This program gives the volunteers the opportunity to develop new skills, to learn from local experts, and to channel their passion to help build just communities.

Cost and Finances

Some program costs are covered by Global Ministries, including: airfare to and from orientation; airfare to and from your placement site; food and ground transportation during orientation and while in service; and housing during orientation and while in service.

Each global justice volunteer participant will be asked to fundraise to support the Global Justice Volunteers Program.

For more information, please review the Participant Handbook or be in contact with the Global Justice Volunteers Office.
