Day 5: YAYA (Youth and Young Adults)
October 14th, 2011
Providing young adults with life-changing opportunities for service.
Young adult mission programs allow young people to be in long-term mission service to the church. In addition to these programs, the B1 Campaign is a 24-hour fasting campaign that educates future leaders about the mission work and giving channels of The United Methodist Church.
And now, through the Young People’s Justice Initiative (YPJI), Global Ministries will engage young people in short-term empowerment through education, exposure, and action planning. This initiative will support specialized training events for and by young people. Global Ministries will partner with youth and young adult networks of racial/ethnic caucuses to develop strategies and create awareness of the initiative. Social media will be utilized to foster connectional relationships with participating young people around the world.
