Children at Risk

What is the Children at Risk School?

The Children at Risk School is for Christians who are passionate about reaching out to children at risk, including street children, refugee children, kids from broken families, orphans, children with HIV/AIDS, and other children with different needs and challenges in their lives.

It is a full-time school with a 3-month lecture phase. The teachings and methods are developed in such a way that students can put them into practice straight away. They will be able to create their own detailed ministry project plan or personal development plan to help them further their ministry goals in a practical way.

After those first 3 months in the classroom, some schools offer an outreach of 3 months with cross-cultural experiences, while other schools offer one or two periods of a 3 to 6-month practicum. Both options, outreach and practicum, are offered to help the student put into practice the lessons learned during the lecture phase.

Word by Heart

The fastest growing school in YWAM, is training up storytellers! Bringing the words of Jesus to life by bridging cultures and languages. The stories will become so real to you that you will become like an eyewitness to the events found in scripture. Once you have experienced the gospel like this, natural memory is unlocked and you will be able to share the stories of Jesus word for word from one of the gospel books in just three months… without memorizing!!!

In this course students will discuss, debate and meditate on weekly scriptures from the gospel, in order to find deeper meaning and understanding of the Bible. Through this, students will have an experience so deep that they will be able to re-tell the stories from the gospel, word for word in their native language— as if they themselves were an actual eyewitness to the event! In doing this, students will be transformed to be more like Jesus. Students will also learn storytelling skills and practice natural memory techniques- without memorizing! Students will learn how to create imaginary memories and see for themself what the eyewitnesses saw and say what they meant- developing honest, technique-free communication that compels audience attention and understanding of the scriptures!


We are becoming “eyewitnesses” to Jesus’ story, the greatest story ever told! Word By Heart helps you know Jesus personally and share him in a unique way by internalizing the gospel story and sharing it word-for-word with others. You’ll experience Him through your own imagination- as if you were actually walking with Jesus himself while he performed many miracles… such as opening the eyes of a blind man!


Word by Heart is about experiencing Jesus through His Word. What if you had lived during Jesus’ time, and had actually walked the streets with him as one of his 12 disciples? What if you witnessed his miracles right before your very own eyes? How would this have effected your life, and the way you relate with the people/world around you? And how would you tell your friends about your experiences with Jesus? As we put ourselves into each of the stories found in the gospel, we begin to see Jesus in a whole new way- and become more like Jesus himself. Be prepared to be transformed through His Word!


The process of “TruthTelling” Understanding the Cultural/Historical Background Re-imagining and Experiencing the Word/Events Personalization of the Passage/Events Learning the exact words of Scripture- without memorizing! Retelling the Story in a way that Captivates your audience.

In just 12 weeks, your way of approaching the scriptures will be transformed- and so will you! Experiencing the gospel in this way molds us to become more like Jesus! You will develop a deep hunger for more of the Word, and the Word itself will begin to naturally flow out of you as you share your experiences of the gospel with the people around you.

Discipleship Training School

A Discipleship training school, also known as DTS seeks to bring you into a more intimate relationship with God. It also gives you an opportunity to discover your passions and your part in God’s purposes for the world. It is for those who long to follow Jesus in new ways with a different perspective.

The course is a full-time program and lasts for five or six months. It consists of two parts: lecture phase and outreach phase. In the lecture phase, you will learn more about God and His world. You’ll learn not only from lectures but also from community living and practical training.

The outreach phase focuses on applying what you learned in the classroom through an intense, cross-cultural experience.

Lecture Phase

This is the first part of the training. Here you get to know and experience God trough different topics every week and each week we have different speakers from all over the world.

A lecture phase also includes worship, intercession, prayer, work duties, small groups and much more!

Outreach Phase

In the outreach phase our goal is to make God known to the people outside our base, in our community, to the islands, the village and other parts of the Philippines and the world.

With the things you learned in the lecture phase you will be able to share God`s Word and love to the people trough your testimony, performing arts and other ways.

YWAM Cebu focus mostly to reach out to the people in the Philippines and indo- China for our outreaches, but we always pray and let the Holy Spirit lead us where to go!

The DTS has two different prices making the school accessible to all those who wish to attend.

For foreigners, the school fee is $1,500. This covers the food, accommodation and other expenses during the lecture phase, except for travel expenses for the midterm outreach. This charge does not cover expenses during the outreach phase.

For those from the Philippines and other developing nations, the school fee is Php 30,000. This covers the food, accommodation and other expenses during the lecture phase, except for travel expenses for the midterm outreach. This charge does not cover expenses during the outreach phase.

The fee for the outreach can change from year to year, because it depends on where we will go. So the outreach fee here will be set during the lecture phase.

We conduct Discipleship Training School every February to July, June to December, October to March.
