Volunteering is a work of heart.

The EPA Conference Council on Youth Ministry (CCYM) will sponsor four Youth Days of Service in each of our four districts this fall, engaging youth in volunteer disaster recovery work with EPA’s Project Restoration.

Youth volunteers across four districts—North, East, South and West—are being asked to sign up individually or in church-sponsored groups and help their districts send the most youth.

The district dates for participation are on non-school attendance days. They are:

  • South: Sept. 26 [Flyer]
  • East: Oct. 24 [Flyer]
  • West: Nov. 12 [Flyer TBA]
  • North: Nov. 25 [Flyer]

Each youth—from 6th to 12th-graders—will spend a Youth Day of Service at Project Restoration work sites helping storm survivors, neighbors and friends restore homes damaged from floods caused by Hurricanes Ida in 2021 and Isaias in 2020. They will receive an orientation to the overall work being done and the various tasks they will perform, along with important safety precautions.

Sign up today to participate by using registration forms for either Individuals or Groups.

“This may be a life-changing day of service you’ll always remember,” said the Rev. William Brawner, EPA Coordinator of Youth & Young Adult Ministries. Contact him at  wbrawner@epaumc.church.
