US Project List

This list identifies approved UM Volunteer In Mission project opportunities in the United States. The goal is to make a Christian Difference in the lives of others and ourselves.

Projects do not need to be United Methodist in order to be listed, however, must be safe, ethical, and approved by the United Methodist Volunteers In Mission (UMVIM) coordinator for the conference in which it resides.

To add a project to this list, site directors should complete and submit the US Project Profile for approval by the conference UMVIM Coordinator(s).  When the new project is approved, the Conference Coordinator will forward the information to the North Central Jurisdiction UMVIM Office for publication on this list.
