The Presbyterian Church in Canada’s Youth in Mission program has been designed to allow youth and young adults to accompany Presbyterian mission partners in Canada and overseas through short-term mission experiences. As you share in the mission of the church you will serve others, enhance your personal growth, learn skills and grow in your faith. Youth help fundraise towards the total cost of the trips through the youth contribution amounts.
