There are plenty of ways that you can get involved in serving your local and global community. Check out some of the initiatives below or talk to your local pastor or conference about getting help with starting a new initiative!
STORM Company is a short-term mission adventure. It is based on five foundations that present a radical example of Christianity in action: no agenda, no walls, no expectation, no fear, and no limits. STORMCo teams are trained for service. They enter a community and ask for a place to stay and a job to do. Their goal is to live out the legacy of service modelled by Jesus Christ.
STORMCo is an acronym that stands for Service To Others Really Matters Company.
Please contact the VicYouth office for contact details of group leaders if you wish to participate in one of the trips. If you are interested in starting one of your own, call (03) 9264 7742 or email email@example.com

Global Youth Day
🌏 Global Youth Day is all about Adventist youth from across the world getting out into the community and being the hands and feet of Jesus 👣 It’s a great idea to start planning early for how you would like to gather your youth each “GYD” and how you can put the theme into practice, “Love is a Verb.” 💓 Global Youth Day activities are led by the local church ⛪ Think about what the needs are in your community, and how you might be able to serve in this area. 🙏 ➡️ For example, you might like to connect with an ADRA initiative in your area, call or visit someone who is sick or families in your community who have been affected by a tragedy, visit the homeless, visit a nursing home, donate blood, or organise a food drive. Resources are available at https://www.gcyouthministries.org/events-and-projects/global-youth-day-gyd/ For help or ideas, reach out to your local church pastor or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Global Youth Day is held on the third Sabbath in March each year.
