It is the example of what is possible through our work that is the greatest contributor to the youths experience.

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 in a YFF event within the last year this training is not required but you are always invited to register.

Coaching & Accountability

And Much, Much, More!

Life with Youth For Freedom brings lots and lots of fun opportunities.

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.

    Counselors, or younglings, who choose to excel in their training by accomplishing optional tasks may qualify to become a Padawan. This is the beginning of your journey to Apprenticeship and beyond. As a Padawan there are predefined tasks which include; keeping integrity with program guidelines, registering youth, leading calls, staffing events, and a final interview. When these task are complete, you may be accepted as an Apprentice.

    This Journey is young and yet to be refined but current opportunities we see for Apprentices, for now, are; free access to Youth for Freedom events filling almost any role, be paid to lead group mentoring calls.

    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!  

    -James R.

    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.
