Scholarships

For us, DYM isn’t about the money; it’s about helping youth workers win.

Wow that is awesome!! Thank you very much!! About the membership, I brought this before our church and there is no money to pay it all with the church account, so our awesome group of parents have agreed to pay a little each month to pay for our membership! So the church fronted the bill, and our parents are paying it back! God has blessed us with a great group of parents; as well as you all for giving us the coupon! And let our sponsor know that we are grateful for their donation!! That money is going to buy a lot of curriculum!! Grace and Peace,
Raymond

Even though our intention is to be the lowest priced, highest quality youth ministry resource provider on the planet … we realize many youth workers don’t have a church budget. God bless you for paying to support your youth ministry. When we hear about you unsung heroes, we are always inspired and humbled by your commitment to serve students at your personal expense. We want to provide extra help to those youth workers who are making these kinds of sacrifices.

Need a scholarship?

If you have a need for a scholarship, please take a moment to fill out the form below. We are going to do our best to find donors who are willing to help! Also, if you know of someone who enjoys supporting youth ministry… send them to this page to bless others.

Scholarships available right now!

Donate a scholarship?

Do you have a heart to support youth workers who have extreme financial needs? Our mission at DYM is to help youth workers with high quality resources that are inexpensive. However, as surprising as it might seem, some youth workers simply can’t afford anything. We hear this from missionaries and youth workers serving in developing countries all the time.

Here’s where you come in to play! You can literally buy resources for another youth worker somewhere around the world. Currently, we don’t have a non-profit arm of DYM, so your donation is really a purchase that we will pass on to a needy youth worker.

What a surprise and BLESSING this generous gift will be for our youth program! I have the opportunity to formally announce this award to our church at our Christmas program Tuesday night, where we will give thanks to God as a community for His provision, as well as prayers of blessings for the businessman you mentioned who made this happen and for you and Download Youth Ministries for facilitating opportunities like these for groups like ours! Because of this generous gift, we are squared away for the first half of 2014, and I’m more excited now than I’ve been in a long time! I feel like a burden has been lifted – the time we spent trying to assemble interesting (to teenagers!) curriculum will be better invested in one-on-one time, small groups, or other opportunities to minister to their friends. We warmly and lovingly thank you.

Wow! I’m blown away! Not only that I could get some help but that your response was so quick. I know that I shouldn’t be surprised by God’s blessings and peoples generosity but I still am every time. I have to admit that as I filled out the scholarship I didn’t really think that anything would happen just because I’m sure that there are people out there that need it more than we do. However, I feel totally blessed by anything that you can offer and personally, deeply encouraged that someone (that doesn’t even know our ministry) would help us out. Thanks a ton for this! Now I’m off to do some DYM shopping!
