*ywam ship dts
what is it?
Be a part of an amazing community that sails around the Pacific to help the poor and disadvantaged. Experience some of your training right on board the ship, bunk up with your mates in the cabin, and eat meals prepared in the galley.
Whether you’re looking for an incredible adventure, or specifically desiring a way to combine your passion for health care and outreach, the YWAM Ship DTS is for you.
And get ready – because this ship has a medical clinic on board and as part of your DTS outreach, you’ll be visiting one of the most exotic places in the world – Papua New Guinea – where the YWAM Medical Ship is helping to provide life saving health care to some of the most remote areas of the country. With up to 1 in 7 women dying during childbirth, and 90% of the population affected by malaria, the need is great.
Don’t have a background in medical work? No worries! It takes a huge team of all sorts of gifts and passion to make this happen! We’re certain there’s a place for you!

*January 26th – June 20th – open to 18-35 year olds
