About Us



Youth with a Mission (YWAM) is a worldwide Christian movement operating in more than 1,000 locations in over 180 countries, with over 25,000 full time staff since 1960. YWAM is decentralised in structure; each centre is financially and legally autonomous, allowing locations to adapt and serve the specific needs of the community.

Through DTS I've learned to value life and,the beauty within. Now I have a passion to go out into the world and give hope and encouragement to those in need.

I couldn't have imagined this DTS experience being any more than it was. I was challenged and stretched while being encouraged and loved.
