Vision: 
Youth With A Mission is an international volunteer movement of Christians from many backgrounds, cultures and Christian traditions, dedicated to serving Jesus throughout the world. Also known as YWAM (pronounced "WHY-wham"), our purpose is simply to know God and to make Him known.
Describe the types of ministry opportunities your agency will offer to Urbana 12 participants: 
We will be presenting a minimum of 100 volunteer/internship project opportunities in every sphere of society/field of studies on every continent. (See www.ipoconnection.org) For those students seeking more than a short-term service project, YWAM will be presenting our introductory course, the Discipleship Training School (DTS) which is offered in many nations and languages and is a unique opportunity to focus on building relationship with God and discover new opportunities to work with Him. The DTS is a full-time, residential training course which begins with an 11 or 12 week classroom phase, followed by an 8-12 week outreach time. The DTS emphasizes cross-cultural exposure and global awareness, preparing students to answer the call to "Go into all the world and make disciples of all nations" Matthew 28:19.
