Generation Transformation

Generation Transformation includes a variety of opportunities for young adults to serve others through Global Ministries. Programs such as Global Mission Fellows, Global Justice Volunteers, and Individual Volunteers give individuals between 18 and 30 years old opportunities to explore their call to ministry and service.

The Global Mission Fellows program is a leader­ship development and mission service opportunity that allows young adults age 20 through 30 to take part in mission and social justice ministries in both international and domestic contexts. The program, building upon Global Ministries’ historic US-2 and Mission Intern programs, is now open to young adults outside of the US to participate in mission service abroad and in their own home country.*

Global Mission Fellows serving internationally participate in a 25-month cycle of service--approximately 23 months in an international setting followed by two months of integrating their experience into a domestic setting. Global Mission Fellows serving within their country engage in service for two years with United Methodist partner organizations.

Learn more at the Generation Transformation site.

* The last cohort of US-2 and Mission Interns complete their service in the summer of 2015.

Get to know both programs in detail. Find out about requirements, processes, and timelines here.
