Organization Name: Youth With A Mission Alberta

Organization Mission Statement: Youth With A Mission is an international movement of Christians from many denominations dedicated to serving Jesus throughout the world. Also known as YWAM (pronounced "WYE-wam"), our aim is to know God and to make Him known. YWAM has locations operating in Calgary, Edmonton, Turner Valley, and Medicine Hat. We are involved in local volunteer opporunities and overseas service in various locations. Each person involved with YWAM is fully volunteer.

Organization Focus: Back when we began in 1960, our main focus was to get youth into short-term mission work. Today we also involve people of almost every age (even many people who choose to spend their "retirement" in active service), from over 130 countries. Firstly YWAMers aim to share their faith effectively and helpfully in ways that the audience (whether teenagers, elderly refugees, or remote people groups)will understand. We also offer practical help. "Mercy ministry" is the "hands and feet" of making God known. YWAM helps meet some of the practical and physical needs of about 400,000 people annually. Caring for street children in South America; aiding in the recovery of drug addicts in North America and Western Europe; feeding and housing refugees and women in need in Africa and Asia, and operating ships that declare the Good News practically and verbally, are just some of the ways in which helping hands are extended. Thirdly we offer training. We aim to better equip Christians to serve others in everything from church ministry, to agriculture and health care, to drug rehabilitation and biblical counseling. Through YWAM's University of the Nations (U of N), missionaries can study in specialized areas.
