Support Emily in her YAGM year of service in the UK!
I am so excited to announce that I have accepted the call to serve as a Young Adult in Global Mission volunteer in the UK starting in August of 2019. I will be one of about 12 YAGM volunteers in the UK, joining the ranks of over 70 YAGM worldwide.
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. You will also be able to follow along with my experiences on my blog (https://sweetpeabumblebeeblog.wordpress.com)
I am thrilled to think about the ways in which this year will form and transform me. Thank you for accompanying me – 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, Central Europe, Jerusalem/West Bank, Madagascar, Mexico, Rwanda, Senegal, 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.
