What is Volunteers-in-Mission?

Volunteers in Mission is a program of the Anglican Church of Canada which places Canadians in dioceses in other countries for service and to enable Canadians to learn about and from the Anglican Church abroad.

A Volunteers-in-Mission Support Group is formed in the volunteers' own dioceses to raise funds to support them as they prepare, engage in service and learning, and return home.
