Serve in Uganda with Young Life Expeditions

Young Life in Uganda first began in the village of Pallisa in 2005 with team of 15 trained volunteer leaders. Today Young Life ministry has grown and is reaching areas in and around the capital city of Kampala, where staff have also started Young Life College Ministry. Young Life Expeditions has been sending teams to Uganda since 2007.​


Young Life Uganda trips will have the opportunity to serve alongside Young Life Uganda staff and volunteer leaders in Pallisa or Kampala in one or more of the following ways:

  • ​Work crew for Young Life Uganda outreach or Campaigner camps
  • Community service projects (development of schools, clinics, Young Life Training Center)
  • Participate in local Young Life neighborhood clubs
  • Homestay visits, contact work with Young Life leaders in local neighborhoods
  • Assist Uganda staff with Young Life Leadership Training for local volunteer leaders

Trip itineraries will generally center around seven to 10 days on the ground, hosted by local Young Life Uganda staff. The service component(s) of a trip will depend on current local ministry needs identified by our Uganda 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.
