CWM Youth Programme 2018
‘Beyond myself in exploring migration’
Thursday 27 July – Saturday 4 August 2018

Council for World Mission have an opportunity for a group of 15 young people to explore the experiences of migrants and asylum seekers during a residential week in the North Yorkshire Dales.
Working alongside the Yorkshire Dale Millennium Trust and Darwen Asylum and Refugee Enterprise (DARE), the group will be helping local farmers in hay bale making, nettle thrashing, willow fencing, working in a red squirrel sanctuary etc. There will also be activities such as caving, mountain hiking and enjoying the local scenic area. The residential week will also be a chance to develop a team spirit, explore migration and the Bible, and learn about CWM and mission.
Additionally, CWM hopes that the residential week will be an opportunity for young people to share and develop their own ideas about how to make their communities more hospitable and welcoming to others.
If you are between 18-25 years old and interested in being a part of the CWM Regional Youth Programme on migration, please speak to someone at your member church or contact Sainimili Kata.
