Serve on Summer Staff

Jin Park driving the speed boat at Saranac.
Do you remember the cool speed boat driver when you went to Saranac? How about those people who worked in the camp store? And the people who prepared our meals? 

All of these important responsibilities were fulfilled by college students and young adults who gave up one month of their summer vacation to serve on Young Life's Summer Staff. And now that you've read this far, how about YOU?
 
That's right. Every summer, Young Life needs hundreds of college students and other young adults to work at camp so that we can give high school kids the best week of their life. Not only will you be serving teenagers, but you will also have a blast as you live and fellowship with Christians from Young Life areas from around the country. The hours can be long and the work tedious, but you will grow in your faith in ways you never imagined possible.


How To Apply

  1. You should first check availability of openings to make sure that the camp where you would like to work still has spots. You can apply to any of Young Life's 20+ camps. The duration of your Summer Staff assignment will vary from camp to camp, but in general expect your assignment to run for four weeks

  2. Go to the Online Application page and then follow the online instructions (You'll need to CAREFULLY enter the Asian Young Life area number as "NJ68" and the staff email address as "ayl@asianyl.org")

  3. Please apply as soon after January 1 as possible. Qualified applicants will be accepted into positions based on the order applications are received.

  4. You should also notify the Asian Young Life office of your intentions because we will need to sponsor you and provide you with a letter of recommendation. Good luck!​​
