You must complete the certification process outlined below. This helps ensure the safety of our youth missionaries. This process usually takes 30 minutes. Once completed, you will be eligible to be a Mission Youth Apostle in Philadelphia! Plus, you will be certified for work in any church or volunteer opportunity for three years and renewal of the certification is a much simpler process. Thank you! You will be asked about this in your interview.
NOTE: Due to the processing timeframes of the required checks, please aim to submit all applications at least 4 weeks prior to the start of the missions.
