Great staff make YFF a success!
Staff are the front lines of transformation for our youth. They will be asked to do hard things, get outside their comfort zone, and be improving in every aspect of their lives. Then they are asked to turn around and use their example and experiences to invite the youth who attend Youth For Freedom events to do the same.
To become a qualified staff member and assist in Youth for Freedom events you must attend one of our YFF Staff Trainings. Staff positions include kitchen crew, moving crew, and youth counselors.
Staff Training Event
This is an entry level training and is required to be a staff member for any Youth for Freedom event. This retreat will familiarize you with Youth for Freedom codes of conduct and rules of operation. It will also be your opportunity to experience first hand the core activities and simulations that make Youth for Freedom events so transformational for those who participate. There will be personal and group coaching to boost you, and take your life to the next level.
This is a staff training and it is also a unique and powerful experience. This is step one in the application process to become a counselor.
This is for adults over the age of 19. If you have attended a staff training or participated as a staff member in a YFF event within the last year this training is not required but you are always invited to register.
Must be 19+ yrs
Counselors are next level!
Counselors are those that will be used as Youth leaders for our Summer camps and YFF Unleashed events throughout the year.
Our ideal counselor is someone who is highly committed and living a life that rocks. They are on the weekly calls and in integrity with the guidelines and ways of being/code of conduct that YFF holds as a standard.
