|Welcome to Car Talk! This discussion on youth and service is with Del Hershberger, Director of Christian Service for Mennonite Church USA. He offers some wonderful, thoughtful insights into the philosophy behind and opportunities for service. Come, take a trip with us and enjoy the Car Talk! Carol Duerksen
As a youth leader who wants to encourage students to do some service, I dont know where to start. Whats available? How do I find out about the options? Is there a list somewhere of everything available through Mennonite organizations?
To begin with, the best place to get basic information on a broad range of opportunities is at the Mennonite Mission Network web site: www.service.MennoniteMission.net. You will find opportunities from a weeklong service/learning experience to a two-year voluntary service assignment; programs for young and old; and domestic and international options.
Other Mennonite service opportunities can be found by visiting these web sites:
Eastern Mennonite Missions - www.needssalt.org/about-emm.html
Virginia Mennonite Board of Missions - www.vmbm.org/pim/
Mennonite Central Committee - www.mcc.org/servicetree/index.html
