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.
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, media crew, security team, administration, youth counselors, and others. All Staff posistions are volunteer until after completion and approval in the Apprenticeship program.
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
