United Church of God

Youth Camp in Nigeria 2020 (postponed to 2022)

*Update March 15, 2021* We're still accepting applications for this project, but due to the current COVID-19 restrictions in Nigeria we have to postpone until summer of 2022. The deadline to apply will be March 20, 2022.

*Update May 1, 2020* We're still accepting applications for this project! As of now we are still planning to move forward, but because of Covid-19, we are monitoring the situation and will make a final decision on June 1, 2020.

United Youth Corps is seeking four volunteers, two men and two women, to serve as staff members at the United Youth Camp to be held in Lagos, Nigeria; travel buffers and minor sightseeing, before and after camp, will add approximately five days to the visit.

This program will benefit the youth of Ghana, as it will connect them with dedicated young adults in God’s church who display an attitude of service and care for others. The Ghanaian young adults who serve as staff will also benefit from the relationships built with the United Youth Corps volunteers. Ultimately, the local congregations will benefit from the lessons each camper brings home with them from camp.

In turn, the United Youth Corps volunteers will gain a deeper understanding into the value of service to others. They will experience the education of international travel, and see how God’s people live in Ghana. They will learn valuable spiritual lessons that can then be shared in their local congregations.

Deadline to apply is May 25, 2020.
