Youth Peace Travel Team Application Deadline Approaches

The first Youth Peace Travel Team was formed in the summer of 1991 as a cooperative effort of a number of General Board programs. Since that year a team has been fielded every summer. The members of the Youth Peace Travel Team travel to camps throughout the Church of the Brethren. The goal of the team's work is to talk with other young people about the Christian message and the Brethren tradition of peacemaking.

The Youth Peace Travel Team is sponsored by On Earth Peace, the Outdoor Ministries Association, and the Church of the Brethren General Board's Youth and Young Adult Ministry Office, Brethren Witness/Washington Office, and Brethren Volunteer Service.

Four youth/young adults between the ages of 18-22 will be selected for the 2007 team. A scholarship stipend is paid to team members through the Ministry Summer Service Program of the Church of the Brethren General Board.

Visit www.brethren.org/genbd/witness/YPTTapp2007.pdf for the application form. If you would like more information contact the BW/WO at 202-546-3202. Deadline for application is February 4, 2007.
