Join Us / Volunteer
Become part of WSCF today by joining your nearest ecumenical Student Christian Movement. When you join a local student Christian group affiliated to a national SCM, you are automatically a member of the WSCF.
To find out more about activities in your area and inquire about joining, please contact your WSCF national movement office or your WSCF regional office to inquire about participation and membership.
Contact and associate memberships are open to any group whose aims and membership are consistent with those of WSCF. Denominational student groups may join WSCF either through an affiliated association of national denominational groups that make up one ecumenical member movement, or via associate membership.
If you join a movement affiliated to the WSCF, your membership gives you the chance to apply for WSCF activities at both regional and global levels. WSCF membership also makes your local group eligible to apply for funding of development programmes in your area, through the Ecumenical Assistance Programme. Member movements of WSCF pay a yearly membership fee to the federation which is set at one percent of the national movement's annual budget.
WSCF regions welcome groups as associate members by agreement of their regional committee. National student Christian movements are affiliated to the WSCF by the agreement of the WSCF General Assembly.
Student Christian groups are welcome to contact their regional office to find out more about joining the WSCF. Please check the Regional Offices list here. If you are not sure which region you would become part of, please feel free to contact more than one regional office for information on how to join.
Senior Friends membership
Former members of WSCF movements and other WSCF supporters are encouraged to register as senior friends of the Federation. Please contact the WSCF office in Geneva with your details or register as a senior friend through this site.
