This YAV year isn’t just about me. It’s about connecting communities and sharing experiences as a way to learn and grow. That being said, there are three ways I’m asking for support:

  • Thoughts & Prayers: Pray for me and those I meet this year.
  • Interest in my year of service: Follow my blog or invite me to speak with your small group or committee. I love connecting with others.
  • Financial gifts: Consider making a one-time gift or an installment to make this year of service possible. International volunteers are asked to partially cover program costs by raising $5,000. This goes toward travel, stipends, health insurance, student loan grants, and food allowance.
