Join Us!

We are so excited you are interested in being a Young Life leader here in the North Springs |Monument area. It is an amazing calling and privilege to walk with kids, be a light in their life, and one day earn the right to introduce them to Jesus. The first steps we ask you to take as you pursue this calling are important, as they not only tell us more about you, give you a clear idea of what is expected of a leader, and initiate your training process so you feel equipped and prepared to jump in with our leadership team.

FIRST STEP:  Contact our Area Director (Jeremy) to line up coffee with one of our staff!

IF AFTER MEETING WITH OUR STAFF YOU ARE SERIOUSLY INTERESTED IN BECOMING A VOLUNTEER LEADER, PLEASE PROCEED TO NEXT STEPS:  We understand that the following can look daunting, but it is not so bad.  It actually goes rather quick.  The reason for these steps is first and foremost that we are protecting kids, giving them our best, and helping new leaders feel comfortable and knowledgable so we aren’t throwing you into the deep end.

 
Part 1: Application, Character Reference, Lifestyle Covenant, Faith and Conduct

(*Click on bolded links below for documents)

 
1) Complete our Volunteer Leader Application and Character Reference Form so that you have a great understanding of Young Life and we have a good understanding of you. This is required of everyone who wants to be a leader.  

* Email your completed forms to our Area Admin Brittany Dahlke.

 

2) Review our Lifestyle, Mission, and Commitment Covenant.  Print and sign (you’ll bring to interview).

 
3) Review and agree to YL Statement of Faith and Conduct.

  

Part 2: Set Up Your Interview

Email your area staff to say you have completed all requested paperwork and that you’re now ready to set up a time to interview!

 

Part 3: Post-Interview

1) Complete our NSM Leader Survey

2) After submitting NSM Leader Survey you will receive an email in a couple days from Young Life regarding a background check and driver questionnaire.  These must be completed before you can jump in with kids.

 

3) We will let you know what team we feel is the best fit for you!  

 

4) Put all club, camps, and retreats into your calendar, and immediately inform staff if you already see some big conflicts.

 
Part 4: Boot Camp – Watch Volunteer Training 101 Videos and Read Training Manual 
1) Week 1: You will receive an email invitation to Right Now Media  (YL Access) that consists of a 4 part video training.  This course is NOT meant to be finished in one sitting.  Take your time to complete each part and reflect on the questions.  After completing a page, click “Save and Return Home.”  You can always return to this course and resume where you left off by clicking “INBOX” under “My Profile” in the top right-hand corner of the screen.                                                        
 
2) Week 2: Download the Training Manual or Save it to your home screen. Again take your time, this training course is not a race.  It is set up in 4 sections so should only take you 8 days to complete if you read a section every 2 days.                                                                                                      
                                                                                                                                                                                                                     
Part 5: Attend New Leader Training when offered (end of August-beginning of September, January-February)
