At CYIA, young people ages 12 and will train to serve in their local CEF chapter area, teaching children in 5-Day Clubs and other gospel outreaches over the summer.
Teens, ages 14 and up, will train as Summer Missionaries and learn firsthand the nuts and bolts of the true missons experience, gaining real-life experience with teaching and counseling children, and participating in basic support raising. Teens may opt to volunteer their time or apply to use their time as a compensated, temporary part-time job.
Pre-teens (ages 12-13), are trained as Missionary Assistants. They will share in club responsibilities such as teaching memory verses, leading songs, and helping the Summer Missionaries in other club details. Missionary assistants are considered volunteers.
