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.

Coordinate daily service activities and see students’ lives change as they experience Christ through service. Support teams with spiritual encouragement and a servant attitude.
