My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Youth Missions International, Seattle, WA, USA
I have worked with youth for 9 years and am now the Director of youth ministry at the church I attend. I have been on a mission trip with my church family and our youth group. I have helped with a few of Youth Missions International (YMI) in state camps and ministries. I find YMI's tactics of preparing youth for missions, ministry and life to be effective and applicable all ages and nationalities. The teams that are sent out together, all face the same training and most to all of the team train together. When that team is sent out, they are prepared to face what is to come head on. What I see within the lives of youth that have been on one or more teams through YMI, is amazing! There more confidant in what hey believe and live it more then before being on the team(s). I Myself am on a team going to Peru in 2012 as one of the team leaders. As a leader I have gone through leadership training, child protection class AND team training with the team; all through YMI. To prep any age person for a life of loving God, loving others and living the life God has for us; I highly recommend looking into YMI and seeing how you can get involved. They have a team that is friendly and ready to work with people. *****
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Washington, helping team trainings and VBS teams. California, being a part of a team training.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Find more ways to support them so they can get more tools to do what they do.
