The programme gets underway in September 2008 with interns placed in parishes across Ireland. 

For the young adults involved this will be the start of a new journey into what it is like to work full time within the church.  For the parishes and communities involved this will be the start of a new expression of their youth work, a chance to see new things happen for their young people and church community.

The Church of Ireland Youth Department offers a range of services and programmes for young people, youth leaders, youth workers and parishes – for more information please visit

If you are interested in taking a ‘year out’ with CIYD on the JUMP Programme or hosting the JUMP Programme in your parish please contact Catherine Little (Year Out Co-ordinator at CIYD) on +44 (0) 28 9066 0052 /
