“The GO Project has taught me so much about faith and social justice, but I didn’t even notice I was learning because I never thought you could have that much fun while learning!”

Those are the words of a youth who took part in The GO Project youth mission program. For nine years, The GO Project has been offering a vibrant experience of church to youth and children.

The first program happened at Islington United Church in Toronto, and it’s been an adventure ever since. First offered for youth, GO now also offers summer camp programs for children as well as a young adult intentional community.

The GO Project has youth programs in Halifax, Vancouver, Saskatoon, and St. John’s, in addition to the Toronto site. The youth live in community and work alongside volunteers at community ministries in the host city. Youth who have participated in The GO Project leave with a strong sense of community and a passion for leadership.

We sing thanksgiving that, through our gifts for Mission & Service, children and youth continue to grow in faith and community, able to offer leadership that can mend the world!

If Mission & Service is already a regular part of your giving, thank you so much! If you have not given for Mission & Service, please join me in making Mission & Service a regular part of your life of faith. In all our Mission & Service giving, with a willing heart, we sing thanksgiving to God!
