EM exists to help people love and serve others like Jesus—sacrificially, holistically, and whole-heartedly—connecting volunteers to learning and service opportunities across the U.S. and around the world.
EM connects people of all ages and backgrounds to go and participate in service and learning experiences that provide an opportunity to come alongside and serve those living in often-overlooked communities while building bridges across cultural, racial, and socio-economic divides.
We provide growth and leadership opportunities for young adults who are passionate about living out their faith, concerned with justice and reconciliation, and who desire to understand what it means to "live their mission" in the world.
EM builds up and empowers people around the world by coming alongside local visions, working together to discover and provide much-needed opportunities to grow and thrive, and committing to local program leadership. This is often accomplished by activating the generosity of volunteers and supporters around the globe.

Everything we do is built on the foundation of solid relationships. We believe we are relational beings in nature, created to be in strong, supportive relationships with each other.
All human beings are created and loved by God, worthy of our attention and respect. We are all equal and valuable in God's eyes—every person we serve alongside, every community member, every volunteer, every donor, every person we meet along the way.
Every EM experience or opportunity meets set standards of excellence and quality. This flows out of our love for God, care for all people and creation, respect for the experience of each person involved, and gratitude for the opportunity to come alongside people for a portion of their life and faith journey.
