Global Ministries Seeks Placement Sites for Young Adult Missionaries

Mar 28, 2011


Do you work in a place dedicated to mission, justice, or community development? Then apply to host a young adult mission worker for a couple of months or a couple of years. Reach out in mission and justice through The United Methodist Church. Make a place and a way for a US-2, Summer Intern, or Mission Intern to work, learn, connect, and advocate.

The young people working as US-2s, interns, and young adult volunteers are committed to making a positive impact with communities where they serve through the General Board of Global Ministries.

As Global Ministries staff and volunteers widen the network of young adults working as missionaries, volunteers, and interns, the agency also seeks to widen its circle of partner organizations where young people can work for justice through The United Methodist Church in the US and internationally.

Some settings where young adult missionaries have worked include advocacy organizations, campus ministries, community organizations, faith-based agencies, camps, churches, campus ministries and colleges. All settings must be places of hope, solidarity, openness, and Christian love.

The overarching Global Ministries philosophy of mission comes from an understanding that missionaries serve with, not to or for others.

Find out how a United Methodist-related place of hope and healing can become a placement site for a Mission Intern or US-2. Apply by May 4, 2011. Or to host an eight-week Summer Intern in the US, the site application deadline is April 15, 2011.
