South Korean Anabaptists and Mennonites have a rich cultural history of peacebuilding and restoring broken relationships. Youth Venture participants will experience this first-hand as they visit congregations, rural communities, and important cultural sights.

Participants visit South Korea’s capital city, Seoul which dates back to 18 BC. The Seoul Capital Area is the world’s fourth largest metropolitan economy (after Tokyo, New York City and Los Angeles). In addition, participants will tour Jeju Island — home to the Jeju people for thousands of years — as well as visit Korean Mennonite churches and farming communities to experience a broad spectrum of South Korean life and culture.

Cost covers travel in South Korea, lodging, food and admission to sites.


Solidarity Scholarship Fund

The Solidarity Fund was created to equalize opportunities and remove financial barriers for individuals who identify as BIPOC (including anyone from Asian, Black, Hispanic, Indigenous, and other People of Color communities) and are interested in participating in Youth Venture or Just Peace Pilgrimages through Mennonite Mission Network.

  • Ages 15+
  • Identifies as BIPOC (including anyone from Asian, Black, Hispanic, Indigenous, and other People of Color communities)
  • Identifies finances as a potential barrier to participating

Considerations

  • Applicants can request consideration for these funds at the time of application and during the application interview.
  • Announcement of disbursement of funds will vary based on start dates of programs.
  • Fund amounts will be proportional to the total amount needed. Proportions will be determined based on the amount available in the fund’s budgeted amount and number of applicants.
  • The Solidarity Fund will be divided between those requesting funds directly in proportion to the amount needed to support service. Total annual designations will not exceed MMN budgeted amount in the fund.
  • The amount given is for one designated service assignment. Recipients can reapply for subsequent assignments, but the scholarship is not automatically available for more than one assignment.
  • Scholarships granted will not be given directly to recipients but will be used to pay for expenses related to the service assignment such as travel costs, local expenses, etc.
  • This information will be shared publicly through fliers, social media, website, etc.
  • Note – any funds distributed to MC USA and MMN related parties will have taxable implications.

Please see the Youth Venture registration form to be considered.
