What is ECYD Mission Corps?

ECYD Mission Corps is an international Catholic high school missionary exchange program, where a 15-17 year-old student can volunteer their time during the summer for a period of 4 to 8 weeks.

ECYD Mission Corps is an opportunity to collaborate with Christ and the Church by serving people through active apostolate, and to help other young people find the meaning of their lives in Christ.

Who are ECYD Missionaries?

A missionary is an ECYD member between 15 and 17 years old who offers to spend some specific time of their life collaborating with Christ and with his Church wherever there is a need.


This time as a missionary is an opportunity for adolescents to have a profound experience of apostolic formation, which helps them grow in their love for Christ and others with a special spirit of self-giving and generosity.

Get to know yourself better and develops life skills.

Have tons of fun!
