You are working with community leaders day-to-day at your service site. You are experiencing the issues affecting the city as you move into the neighborhood.  You are reading books and engaging in trainings around issues of community development, racial reconciliation, social justice, and discipleship. You are listening to and learning from your neighbors.

This is hands-on education.

Mission Year has teamed up with Eastern University, a Christian institution near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to offer both undergraduate and graduate educational opportunities to Mission Year participants. This dynamic partnership creatively captures the hands-on experience of Mission Year and the academic excellence of Eastern University.
