England—Urban Light community trainee

Urban Light -- England

3-month to 2-year terms
Ages 21+
Journey International



Urban Light wants to offer you a chance to combine your professional and personal development by enhancing your knowledge and skills to impact communities.

This is a unique opportunity for young adults that seek to transform a local community primarily through engaging with children.

You will spend a year living and working in a neighborhood just north of London, becoming an integral part of the life of that community. You'll get to know the youngsters through participation in the primary schools, youth clubs, and churches--through them get to know their families and other networks.

You will develop your potential by being part of creative initiatives, and by being encouraged to generate your own innovative ways of being involved. You will be challenged, inspired, and stretched in your thinking, faith and practice as a follower of Jesus, and we want you to impact the children and community in which you are placed so that they too explore change and growth.

We'll walk with you through this experience, sharing new and old wisdom, our own learning and receiving your thoughts and creativity.

You will also take a trip to Africa for 2 weeks to help with a building project.

Urban Light is connected to Urban Expression, which is part of the Anabaptist Network UK, a partner of Mennonite Mission Network
