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 a Christian charity that offers global opportunities for volunteers from diverse backgrounds to care, connect, serve, and build with individuals and communities. YWAM is decentralised in structure and financially autonomous. This allows each centre to adapt and to serve the specific needs of the community.
YWAM Townsville has operated for over 20 years with an aim to build capacity in young people and to develop the community through three focus areas: Training, Medical Ships, and Youth Initiatives. YWAM Townsville has grown to over 100 full-time volunteer staff operating out of a campus that takes up an entire city block in the heart of Townsville’s central business district.
