The UMC has a Youth Service Fund supported by youth for youth?


The Youth Service Fund is the United Methodist mission fund supported for youth by youth. Through Youth Service Fund, United Methodist teens raise money for other teens doing ministry in their churches and communities impacting poverty, illiteracy, absenteeism and social justice. When all of the donations are joined together within an Annual Conference, 70% of the total goes to projects selected by youth in leadership from the region. The remaining 30% is sent to GCFA, and this amount is used to fund projects that a team of youth from around the world select.


The Youth Service Fund has provided funding to youth projects for nearly 50 years and countless youth have benefitted from all around the world. This fund was established by the global United Methodist Church to support youth and youth ministries in their endeavors to live and grow as faithful disciples of Jesus Christ. Young people have continuously proven to be extremely generous, and the Youth Service Fund would not exist without their monetary gifts given year after year. However, money alone is not what keeps Youth Service Fund alive. Youth are donating their time and effort to fundraise and using their creative energy to form projects that meet the needs of their community. Through the Youth Service Fund, youth are joining together to spread hope to their peers.
