Seed is a two-year program that brings together a cohort of young adults ages 20–30 from around the world to learn, serve and reflect.

Within their regional group, each Seed participant has an assignment where they live in a local community, serving with MCC partners or churches that work from the grassroots to address issues such as violence, oppression, food insecurity, access to education, climate change and environmental destruction. We have Seed programs in Bolivia, Colombia, Southern Africa, Africa’s Great Lakes region and Central America.

Each Seed group brings together a cohort of participants from diverse countries and backgrounds. As part of Seed’s focus on peace, participants learn from and work with people from different political, theological and cultural backgrounds. This diversity makes for a richer learning experience for all participants.

Over two years, Seed participants reflect individually and as a group on a range of topics, looking at how national and international issues affect the communities they are serving in.
