About Charleston Youth Mission
Located in the Park Circle area of Charleston, Charleston Youth Mission immerses young people in one of the oldest cities of our nation. Participants will learn about the area’s rich history as well as the current situation of the city. From slavery to today’s racial-economic disparity, at Charleston Youth Mission we will look at the common threads, serve our neighbors, and reflect on God’s call for justice and equity for all.
CYM’s mission immersion programs are opportunities for groups of young people to learn about the challenges and needs of our neighbors living on the margins in the greater Charleston area. These programs include week long summer trips, fall and spring weekends, and spring breaks. Mission immersion experiences include lodging, food, serving at a variety of local agencies, and debriefing that uses biblical reflection, group discussion, and art, led by the CYM staff.
Charleston Youth Mission has a variety of opportunities for college-aged young people, including summer internships, workshops, and specially designed events for college group weekends and spring breaks.
