The application deadline for the 2022-24 cohort of Global Mission Fellows on the US-2 track is Thursday, March 31. Join the legacy and movement of young adults in the United States who have crossed boundaries to better understand and respond to various forms of injustice since 1951.

Young adults on the US-2 track leave their home state to serve in a new community for two years. They gain a fresh perspective on systems preventing social change and address injustice by serving in areas such as immigration rights, homelessness, civic engagement, youth and campus ministry, food insecurity, and anti-racism and justice outreach.

Fellows form meaningful relationships with their host community as they are mentored by organizations meeting immediate needs and working toward lasting transformation. In addition to long-standing placement sites in Florida, Michigan and Washington state, new placements are available in Iowa and Utah.

The Global Mission Fellows program is open to those from different denominational backgrounds, but participants must be willing to represent The United Methodist Church and uphold its social principles during their time of service. The Wesleyan value of personal and social holiness is at the core of the program.

The application can be found at https://umcmission.org/become-a-fellow/. Those selected for the next cohort will begin training and service in August and September of 2022.

For more information regarding the program or application process, email missionaryinfo@umcmission.org.
