Serve in Zimbabwe with Young Life Expeditions

ZIMBABWE FLAG.pngYoung Life began in Zimbabwe in 2006 in the rural area of Matopo Hills just outside of the city of Bulawayo. Today Young Life ministry is thriving in and around the areas of Bulawayo, Gweru, Harare and Victoria Falls. Some of the original Young Life club kids were given the opportunity to attend university through Young Life’s Developing Global Leaders (DGL) program, and have since helped to begin Young Life in new cities across the country. Young Life Expeditions has been sending teams to Zimbabwe since 2006. ​Check out the Young Life Zimbabwe website to learn more about the ministry there.​


Young Life Expeditions Zimbabwe trips will have the opportunity to serve alongside Young Life Zimbabwe staff and leaders in Matopo Hills or Bulawayo, in one or more of the following ways:

  • Work crew for Young Life Zimbabwe 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 Zimbabwe 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 Zimbabwe staff. The service component(s) of a trip will depend on current local ministry needs identified by our Zimbabwe 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 Zimbabwe, as an extra one- to three-day 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.​
