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.

Being a Staff Member of YFF is one of the greatest experiences of a lifetime. It is a great Carreer Internship, Volunteer Opportunity, Resume Builder, and Opportunity to GIVE BACK to teens, the future leaders of our planet.

You make friendships that last a lifetime, and get to help an organization that is changing the world. Spend time in the mountains with some of the coolest people you’ve ever met. We are looking for people who open to growth and willing to do hard things.

Staff positions we are looking for include:    

Kitchen Crew, Media, Director’s Assistant, AV Crew, Security, Nurse, EMT, Lifeguard, Camp Mom or Dad 

The transformational work I witnessed from these teens blew me away! It an amazing experience not just for myself but to witness others as well! – Amanda

    I discovered Youth For Freedom when I was 14, and I went every year after that! I’ve worked for the conference for a couple of years, and I can say that it really does what it claims; changing youth’s lives for the better. I am so grateful for Youth For Freedom!!!

    As a trainer for YFF, I watch miracles happen each year. I know of no other youth program that can do this much good in just three short days. The youth get re-grounded, discover really who they are, see their own potential, and get a glimpse of their own life mission. Many of these youth save up their own money to make sure they can come the next year for this life changing experience!

    YFF is an incredible experience. Many of my most cherished memories have taken place there. The growth I experienced there has had a large effect in moulding me into the person I am today.
