Most people first get involved with YWAM by doing a short-term outreach or a DTS, but if you are over 18 you can apply to join as a Mission Builder (short-term volunteer who hasn't done a DTS) or staff member.
Most people in YWAM need partners in order to do their ministry, depending on God to motivate people to help provide financial support for their work and ministry. If you would like to support a particular YWAM staff member or family or if you wish to contribute financially to Family Ministries, please visit this page.

How to Apply?
Youth With A Mission (YWAM) is a volunteer movement. Our lack of decentralized funding has enabled rapid growth and means that all our individual staff and ministries partner closely with other believers and church bodies to fund their work. We do not provide a salary for any of our staff - most YWAM staff have financial partners such as churches and friends who provide funds so they be active in their ministry. If you would like to support a particular YWAM staff person or family, please contact them directly to find out the best way to do this, as financial and legal structures vary from nation to nation. In some cases your donation will be tax-deductible.
