Posted: 03/18/14

  • QUALIFICATIONS: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 are needed who love youth and are passionate about serving. See our website for more detailed information about qualifications.
  • DUTIES:YouthWorks offers several types of summer staff positions/internships. Although each team member shares many of the same job responsibilities, unique areas of leadership define each position. Full-time YouthWorks staff are working year-round to set up the mission sites. 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 home painting prior to being hired. All 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. SITE DIRECTOR Experience authentic leadership. Mentor and supervise 3-4 Site Coordinators. Assist them with daily service and ministry projects. Manage finances with integrity and maintain the overall spiritual focus of the mission site. Provide leadership for adult leaders and help them process their mission week as they experience it alongside their youth. Develop lifelong friendships with community members and be changed by their love. Site Directors must be of a post-college age, have previous leadership experience and the ability to manage a team. SITE COORDINATORS KIDS CLUB Enable teenagers to experience the joy of loving kids. Facilitate a daily Kids Club and coordinate morning service opportunities. Provide leadership for participants as they create crafts, plan games, practice songs, and make a Bible story come alive. Come to know and love community kids and their families as you work with them for an entire summer. See life change first hand as teenagers have the chance to love children with Jesus’ love. Kids Club Coordinators must be bold and confident in leading at-risk children. PROGRAM Help youth see the reason behind why they serve as you interact with them on a daily basis. Love and encourage youth in their experience and faith journey. Partner with and provide leadership for daily work projects, Kids Club or ministry sites. Facilitate fun, meaningful and educational evening activities. Plan and coordinate nightly Club, with your team’s support. Prepare and give a Christ-centered talk based on the summer theme with provided outlines. UTILITY Utility Staff begin the summer assigned to a region, not a specific community. Be a jack of all trades. Serve in a variety of areas. Be trained for several positions and offer support to Site Coordinators. Coordinate daily service activities and see students’ lives change as they experience Christ through service. Support teams with spiritual encouragement and a servant attitude. Staff must be flexible and willing to adapt to changing roles and locations. At some point during the summer, Utility Staff may be permanently placed with a team to fill an open position. SERVICE Get to know the various needs of an urban area and discover how volunteers can help a local organization make a difference.
