Summer Youth Program
The MDS Summer Youth Program (SYP) is a week-long service experience designed for youth and their sponsors to put hands and feet to the gospel by serving others.
If your youth group is interested in spending a week with MDS at a Summer Youth Project location, please complete the inquiry form below anytime of year. When the SYP project locations are determined (usually by late December or early January) inquiry groups will receive an email inviting them to apply.

How to Apply
MDS runs week-long youth projects during the summer months. Groups arrive Sunday early evening, work Monday through Friday, and leave the project site Friday evening or Saturday morning. If your youth group is interested in an SYP week, please complete the inquiry form below. In January you will receive an MDS email announcing the upcoming SYP weeks and locations.
Your group will then complete an application form due in January. An MDS placement coordinator will be in touch with your group to confirm your placement. Once you have agreed to a placement your group will submit a participant list and $50 per person (exact deadlines for each step are indicated on the application form).
