UM Army 2023
Participants eat, sleep, enjoy fellowship and worship at host locations. They are divided into work teams of four to six youth with adult support for the week’s work. U.M. ARMY requires that church groups bring 2 adults for every 5 youth. Preparation, safety and teamwork are priorities for all participants.
U.M. ARMY youth and adults work together on small construction projects such as porches, stairs and handicap access ramps. Teams also do a variety of home maintenance such as handrails, yard work, painting, repair of leaky roofs, windows and doors. Clients are referred through local social service agencies, and church organizations. Jobs are selected and completed based on greatest need.
