Position Description


YouthWorks is a multi-denominational Christian, nonprofit organization that exists to connect teenagers to God, each other and communities through life-changing, Christ-centered mission trips. As 25,000 people take part in service this summer at over 60 communities, we need college and post-college-age staff to be on the front lines leading this ministry on each of our sites. In the midst of managing around 65 students and adult leaders on a mission trip each week, our staff teams cultivate relationships, develop their leadership skills and deepen their faith. All of our ministry positions are paid. For more information, see our website:



YouthWorks offers several types of summer staff positions/internships. Although each team member shares many of the same job responsibilities on site, each unique position emphasizes different areas of leadership. All summer staff receive their community information and are trained at the beginning of the summer. For example, YouthWorks does not expect all Work Projects Coordinators to know how to teach every aspect of home painting prior to being hired. The main thing we ask is that you would be willing to learn.


Staff work together to create a spiritually focused and servant-centered mission site. All staff participate in evening programming in a leadership capacity and interact with youth at every opportunity. Other responsibilities include building relationships with community members, coordinating one meal a day, and having a weekly check-in time with your supervisor. Staff must be flexible, teachable, and willing to grow in all areas. The specific position descriptions are as follows:



Lead ministry by getting to know the various needs of a community and then discover how volunteers can help a local organization make a difference. Network with social service and ministry organizations to coordinate service opportunities for teenagers. See lives change as teenagers are taken out of their comfort zones and come face to face with Jesus in a new way.



Potential summer staff must be at least one year out of high school to meet our minimum application requirements. Candidates must demonstrate good judgment and problem-solving skills, able to handle responsibility and have leadership experience. Staff should value youth and be passionate about serving. See our website for more detailed information about qualifications.
