Region: United Kingdom
Northern Ireland is a spiritually dark place. Until 1999, the country was in the midst of a civil religious battle. The results have been devastating, from high alcohol abuse problems, teen pregnancy, teen suicide to a lack of family involvement in young adult’s lives.
YMI has three internship opportunities to serve this region. As an intern with YMI UK, you will be partnered with local churches and ministries to assist families and young people in the community.
As a SALT Sports intern, you will assist in leading Christ-centered sports camps for local youth.
As an intern for The Edge, you’ll serve the local community of Ballynahinch by building relationships with youth at a teen drop in community center.
