Praise & Reviews

They are excellent!!  Thoughtful.  Focused on root issues and not fast fix.  Focused on human beings and the theological foundation of mission.  Youth friendly.  Thinking of how to learn from, teach, engage with young people.

What an incredible week we had at RYM this summer!  The program was excellent, and the care and concern to each detail and each participant makes the week flow so smoothly.  In an environment that could potentially be so frustrating, hot, and exhausting, (their) organization and attention to detail creates instead an environment of hospitality where hearts are opened and lives transformed.  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

We worked with AYM last summer and they connected us with amazing organziations that are the hands and feet of God in Asheville.  We learned so much!

(YMCo) would be my first choice.  We’ve done the Asheville, Raleigh, and Memphis sites.  All top notch.  So much more than just going and doing work; the learning and debriefing led by college staff is fantastic.

Youth Mission Co is amazing! The Raleigh site is housed at our church and they’re doing amazing work in the community. We’ve also taken our group to the Asheville site and will be using Memphis this summer!

You will not regret for a single moment using them for your mission trip.

My congregation has used their services on several occasions and have been pleased with the program and the experiences of the folks who were involved.  I recommend them to anyone who is looking for the services that they provide.
