We are a United Church service and learning initiative, challenging and changing the lives of youth in Waterloo Presbytery. We strive to awaken youth to the realities of economic and social Justice Issues in developing countries and how our own trade and foreign policies effect these issues for others and for ourselves. Every two years over the March Break, we plan a trip to a developing nation, with day-long learning workshops throughout the preceding year to help prepare participants. TCOW was developed as a continuation to the growth and development of faith for youth after confirmation and as a way to encourage their global citizenship.
Our organizing committee is made up of volunteers from a variety of churches around Waterloo Presbytery. We are ministers, youth workers, and individuals interested in providing opportunities for youth to explore social justice issues in their faith context.
