Youth on a mission

International Volunteering

Through The Breathe Project, Aberfeldy Parish Church provides a range of volunteering opportunities across the world.

Help to get there
In the past young people have benefited from placements in California, The Rockies, Peru, Poland, Ukraine and South America. Various levels of support are offered, from assistance with fundraising to accessing grants.

Forging links
Through the links that have been built up over many years and working alongside partnership organisations such as the YMCA and Latin Link, we have been able to offer young people tailor made options.

Why go?
Teenagers and young adults might be more connected than ever with what’s happening around the world, but experiencing another culture is a wholly different thing. Seeing what it's like to live below the poverty line, build a church, carry water, care for children in war-torn countries, can play a crucial part in their life perspective.

Mission trips challenge comfort zones in terms of the world and God, taking faith beyond the doors of the church and applying to real-world living.
