Young Adult Missionary Application Deadline Extended

12/6/2008

The application deadline for the next classes of United Methodist short-term young adult missionaries has been extended for a month--to January 1, 2009.

The deadline applies to the US-2 and Mission Intern programs. The US-2 opportunity places young adults in two-year appointments in the United States. Mission Interns serve for three years, the first half in an international placement and the second in the US. All applicants should be between ages 20 and 30.
 

US-2 Program

US-2s are actively involved in social-justice ministries. The program is strong on leadership development and in working with communities engaged in struggles for justice. US-2s live out the transforming gospel of Jesus Christ in concrete situations. They work as community developers, educators, advocates, and direct-service coordinators at churches, college campuses, and non-profit agencies. A college degree or equivalent life experience is required. All program costs are covered by the young adult program office.
