Training  — Change your mind. Change your life. Change your world.

YWAM training teaches you to explore and share your faith. A wide variety of specialized training programs equip students with skills that can be applied in many situations to convey the love of Christ and participate practically in missions.

YWAM’s discipleship and training programs aim to equip followers of Christ to serve more effectively in a variety of missionary fields.  As a high school student, you can attend any of YWAM’s short-term discipleship training programs.  Some a day, a week or even longer during the summer.  Or after graduating you can study in specialized areas such as science and technology, media and communications, the humanities or Christian ministry, picking and choosing courses that will help you follow a specific calling, or pursue a degree through YWAM’s University of the Nations (UofN).

YWAM discipleship training programs usually take place within a YWAM community at one of our centers around the world. They combine classroom teaching with ongoing discipleship and practical service. Most programs incorporate several weeks of application activities, often in another culture, where the principles learned are practiced in order to accelerate learning.

YWAM Schools vary widely in their size and surroundings, depending on the location. Our introductory course, the Discipleship Training School (DTS) is offered in many nations and languages and is a unique opportunity to focus on building your relationship with God and discover new opportunities to work with Him.
