Serve in Malawi with Young Life Expeditions

malawi flag.pngYoung Life began in Blantyre, Malawi, in the fall of 2004 under the leadership of Gary and Judy Hopkins. Young Life continues to grow there today under the leadership of the Young Life national staff in Malawi’s two largest cities, Blantyre and Lilongwe. In addition to serving in a number of government schools across the region, Young Life is also active in a private national school and an international school. Young Life Expeditions has been sending teams to Malawi since 2008. 


Young Life Expeditions Malawi trips will have the opportunity to serve alongside Young Life Malawi staff and volunteer leaders in Blantyre or Lilongwe, in one or more of the following ways:
  • ​Work crew for Young Life Malawi outreach or Campaigner camps
  • Community service projects (development of local schools, clinics, Young Life office)
  • Participate in local Young Life neighborhood clubs
  • Homestay visits, contact work with Young Life leaders in local neighborhoods
  • Assist Malawi staff with Young Life Leadership Training

Trip itineraries will generally center around seven to 10 days on the ground, hosted by local Young Life Malawi staff. The service component(s) of a trip will depend on current local ministry needs identified by our Malawi host staff. Groups typically have a minimum of 10 people, including the trip leader. Potential groups should contact us to confirm available trip dates and flexibility as this information is continuously being updated and is subject to change.

Safari opportunities are available in Malawi, as an extra day or overnight excursion added to the end of the trip, though safari costs will not be tax deductible. We will help plan and coordinate safari reservations, but teams must be prepared to handle payment for these costs separate from your general Young Life Expeditions service trip expenses.
