The 21

Discover. Serve. Unite


The 21: the gift of a life-changing trip to discover your Coptic heritage, serve the children, unite with your people; and in doing so, transform the future of Copts.

Our mission is to give every qualified young Coptic adult (ages 18 to 23) the opportunity to serve in Egypt. We believe that diaspora Coptic youth (who live outside of Egypt) should be given the opportunity to learn about their heritage and Coptic identity through the power of service. The three-week trip will encompass a service portion – teaching English to young children – and a discovery portion.

What does it mean to be freely gifted? It means that the following expenses are fully covered: flight, accommodations, meals, admissions and transportation. Space is limited and the trip is in high demand, so apply today. Deadline is February 15th.

Not qualified for The 21, or the dates don’t work for you? Check out another way to serve in Egypt with Serve to Learn.
