Welcome to Hannah's Page!
Support my call to serve as a volunteer for the ELCA’s Young Adults in Global Mission program!
It is with great excitement that I have accepted the opportunity to serve as a Young Adult in Global Mission volunteer in Senegal (specific location TBD) starting in August. I will be one of more than 85 young adults serving on behalf of the ELCA in 11 different country programs around the world!
As part of accepting this call, I am asked to raise at least $5,000. Please help me reach my goal by supporting my fundraising efforts with a donation today. Through your donation, you join me on this journey as I grow in my own faith and walk in partnership with our global companions. I am thrilled to think about the ways in which this year will form and transform me.
I am so thrilled to be embarking on my first post-grad adventure in a year of global service in Senegal. Because I am asking for support, I would like you to know why I feel called to this year of service. One of my goals in life was to partake in the Peace Corps. When I found this program, in a series of last minute happenstance, I was so enthralled, excited and nervous about possibly serving in one of the many foreign placements. Service, and experiencing and learning from new cultures are a few of the things that bring me joy in life. Given that I am a naïve college graduate, and based on my political studies I will enter this year open-minded and ready to bring back countless life lessons.
With love and many thanks,
Thank you for joining me and for your support – every gift truly matters!
About Young Adults in Global Mission
The ELCA’s Young Adults in Global Mission program provides young adults, ages 21-29, the opportunity to grow in their faith and work in partnership with our global companions. Young adults in the program serve in churches, schools and social service ministries. Currently the program is engaged in work in Argentina/Uruguay, Australia, Cambodia, Central Europe, Jerusalem/West Bank, Madagascar, Mexico, Rwanda, Senegal, Southern Africa and the United Kingdom.
The total cost for one young adult in the program is $15,000. Each young adult is tasked with raising a minimum of $5,000 to help support their year of service. The ELCA commits to raising the additional $10,000 per volunteer through generous congregations and donors. If more than $5,000 in gifts is received, the additional funds will be help to support other young adult volunteers and ensure that there is a sustainable source of revenue for future the Young Adults in Global Mission program.
