The IASYM is focussed on furthering the academic study and research of youth and youth ministry, the formal teaching and training of youth ministry (at universities, seminaries, denominations, para-church organisations, local ministries, or wherever else it may occur), and on the growth and development of youth ministry as a recognised profession.

Our goal is to raise the profile of youth ministry as a calling, career and/or professional enterprise, and to encourage the reflection on youth ministry as an academic discipline that will support youth ministry at this level.

The association produces the Journal of Youth and Theology, published two times a year by Brill publishers.

Membership in the association is open to individuals involved in the study, research or teaching of ministry and work with youth.
