Community Minister

The Community Ministry team is unique since it is not formally connected to any specific ICYA program. This structure allows for flexibility in weekly scheduling in order to be available as needs arise within the North End community. Community Ministers act in cooperation with the other ICYA ministries and find ways to engage or support the existing programming that is already in place. This Community Ministry role specifically focuses on connecting with young women in the community.
