Mission Statement


Mission Year is a dynamic movement of believers dedicated to building the Kingdom of God through sacrificial service. Every day our Team Members put their faith into action in inner-city neighborhoods across the nation, providing a powerful combination of community service and Christian love. They tutor, build, nurture, repair, encourage, assist, organize, teach, learn from, listen to, and pray with all kinds of people, all in the name of Jesus. Inevitably, participating in this annual campaign of faith, hope, and love transforms our Team Members in a profound and lasting way, so that Mission Year's greatest legacy may be found in the lives of our Alums around the world. Nevertheless, our primary goal remains the same: to recruit, train, and deploy committed Christian young people in such a way that they can make a genuinely positive impact on their inner-city neighborhoods and on their inner-city neighbors this year.
