We are so excited you want to volunteer for Youth For Freedom! Volunteering is a great way to get involved and help make the conference a success. We have lots of available volunteer positions – counselors, kitchen staff, tech crew, and more!
As a Youth For Freedom volunteer you will be asked to do hard things, go outside your comfort zone, and strive to improve in every aspect of your life; and then we ask you to turn around and use your example and experiences to invite the youth who attend Youth For Freedom to do the same. We prepare you through training retreats, conference calls, and group mentoring. This life changing training and mentoring helps you to live a life of true freedom.
Volunteering Comes With Tons Of Perks
Monthly Life Coaching
Three Day Training
And Much, Much, More!
The counselors represent a role model from history, prepare firesides, read books and lead a discussion on them, help plan and run a simulation, mentor and oversee the experience of a group of 6 to 8 youth, and keep the energy high throughout the conference.

This is the person who keeps the music flowing and makes sure everyone can hear every word from our awesome speakers. You will help set up speakers and sound equipment in multiple locations, and you will be the person to turn on and off the music and the microphones. You will help troubleshoot if there are technical problems, so some experience is nice, although not required.
There are many activities which need to be set up or taken down during the conference, and these are the lucky volunteers to do move stuff around. You will be under the direction of our Event Director, who will give you instructions on setting up or taking down chairs, tables, ropes courses, and other activities in various locations around the conference. You need to be self motivated and willing to focus since you will have to go straight from one assignment to another to get things done on time, and often the Event Director will have to be in a different location, so you have to be trustworthy to get things done right by following instructions.
