Applications for the coming service year open on November 1st, and
close on January 15th, 2021. No further applications will be received
after this day.
A one-year, international service-learning and faith-formation
opportunity in churches and social service ministries for young
adults, ages 21-29.
Young adults serve alongside Lutheran companion church bodies and
organizations in one of ten country programs around the world, being
shaped by the witness of our global neighbors in a cross-cultural
journey of faith. For the 2021-2022 service year, country programs are
projected to be: Argentina & Uruguay, Australia, Central Europe,
Jerusalem/West Bank, Madagascar, Mexico, Nepal, Rwanda, Senegal, and
the United Kingdom. PLEASE NOTE: Due to the continued
uncertainties presented by COVID-19, country programs for the
2021-2022 service year are subject to change.
Areas of service include, but are not limited to, health and human
rights, congregational ministry, education, environmental justice, and
professional support & communications. All site placements provide
opportunities for young adults to confront issues of wealth and
poverty, racial privilege, gender privilege, economic disparity, and
globalization, all through the lens of faith.
All applicants will receive a response by the middle of March, 2021.
Specific country assignments are made at the mandatory
Discernment-Interview-Placement (DIP) event on March 18-21, 2021.
