Overview of Ministry Activity
WWYC partners with secular and faith based organizations in country to establish first contact with youth from many different spheres of society. Partners include language schools, orphanages, camping associations, trade unions, clubs, and private businesses.
WWYC then partners with Christian organizations in country to deepen and develop the work begun during our youth outreaches. These partners include churches, para church ministries, Christian mentoring clusters, and local missionaries/church leaders.
WWYC works year round to mentor our mentors providing training at twice a year retreats, equipping from regular staff visits, and personal development opportunities via full time in country partners.
