Have you heard? From April – July we are picking up the tools and getting to work as we build new accommodation for our full-time volunteer staff and develop our newly acquired youth precinct.
Looking for reasons to join us? Here’s a few!
1) Travel to one of the most beautiful places in the world
It’s true! Townsville is right off the coast from the Great Barrier Reef, the winter weather is just about PERFECT (28/82 degrees with a nice sun and a slight breeze), and Magnetic Island, located just off our coast, was voted “Best Castaway Island in the World!” This is a great opportunity to combine travel and new experiences with a purposeful project.
2) Use your practical skills in a meaningful way
A huge area of need we have is accommodation for volunteers who are wanting to join us for 2+ years. More accommodation on our campus means that we can engage more volunteers in service locally, regionally and internationally.
Developing our newly acquired Youth Precinct (just up the road from our campus) also brings us a step closer to utilising it for meaningful youth outreach in our local community.
Your investment of time and skill will directly contribute toward more lives touched in North Queensland and Papua New Guinea.
3) It’s not a big time commitment
Come for as little as a week, or for the whole project. Simply choose the dates that suit you between 19 April – 5 July, 2020. This is also a great opportunity to suss out what YWAM is all about if you have been considering a longer commitment.
4) Work alongside like-minded people from all over the world
For many of our volunteers, being a part of the YWAM community is the highlight of their experience. It is very special to work alongside volunteers from all over the world who share the same passion to serve!
5) We take care of all the details!
That’s right! All you need to do is complete a short application, book your flight, and show up! We provide you with accommodation and food once you get here so you can focus on the work that’s at hand.
Hope you can join us!
