Invitation to Advertising Partners

When you advertise in Young Salvationist (YS), your ad appears in a magazine with an average circulation of 40,000. It is distributed to Salvation Army locations across the country and individual subscribers. Advertising charges help us to meet our per page cost of production. In return, advertisers identify with the mission and message of The Salvation Army. YS is published ten times a year: monthly throughout the school year (Sept–May), and one summer issue (June). Its audience is high school and early college-aged readers. Most readers worship at or are otherwise affiliated with The Salvation Army. Each issue is published electronically on our website and through our app. Your ad will include links to drive traffic to your website.
