If you’re thinking you’d like to take a gap year but want to stay plugged into your local community and serve in your local
context, then HomeGrown is the option for you. Stay living in your local area and just join us for all training, events and
retreats. You also get to enjoy being part of a community as you meet other young adults on the course who have the same
passion as you. Working alongside your home church as your placement, you will gain experience in youth ministry while
building relationships and learning to serve.

HomeGrown allows you to save money on food and accommodation if staying at home and, subject to agreement with your
church/placement, you could also finish your studies or hold down a part-time job, helping cover the cost of your year out
whilst also saving for your next steps.

This stream requires a financial contribution from your home/placement church.

Age: 17 - 25
Cost: £1,495 (These costs cover all your training, teaching, accommodation and food for the year)
Applications open: October 2020
Applications close: August 2021
