YouthWorks Paid Summer Job/Internship Opporunities

General Information

YouthWorks is a multi-denominational, nonprofit organization that exists to connect teenagers to God, each other and communities through life-changing, Christ-centered missions trips. As 30,000 people take part in service this summer at over 70 communities, we need over 300 college and post-college-age staff to be on the front lines leading this ministry. In the midst of leading around 65 students and adult leaders on a mission trip each week, our staff teams cultivate relationships, develop their leadership skills and deepen their faith. And they get paid to do it!


YouthWorks offers several types of summer staff positions/internships. Although each team member shares many of the same job responsibilities, unique areas of leadership define each position. All summer staff receive their community information and are trained at the beginning of the summer. For example, YouthWorks does not expect all Work Projects Coordinators to know how to teach every aspect of home painting prior to being hired. The main thing we ask is that you would be willing to learn.

Staff work together to create a spiritually focused and servant-centered mission site. All staff participate in evening programming in a leadership capacity and interact with youth at every opportunity. Other responsibilities include building relationships with community members, coordinating one meal a day and having a weekly check-in time with your supervisor. Staff must be flexible, teachable and willing to grow in all areas.


Promote an environment where youth connect their service to Jesus as you interact with them daily. Love and encourage students in their experience and faith journey. Partner with and provide leadership for daily work projects, children’s programming or service sites. Plan and facilitate a large group gathering each evening that includes worship, sharing, processing and interaction with provided theme materials.


Help youth engage in ministry by building relationships with community members through work projects. Learn how to set up projects and partner with local community contacts. Teach participants the basics of painting and watch them be transformed as they serve in new ways. See the lasting effect on both community members whose homes have been improved, as well as the teens and adults who completed the repairs.


Lead ministry by getting to know the various needs of a community and then discover how volunteers can help a local organization make a difference. Network with social service and ministry organizations to coordinate service opportunities for teenagers. See lives change as teenagers are taken out of their comfort zones and come face to face with Jesus in a new way.


Enable participants to participate in ministry while they experience the joy of loving kids ages 5-10. Facilitate a daily Kids Club and coordinate morning service opportunities. Prove leadership for participants as they create crafts, plan games, practice songs, and make a Bible story come alive. Come to know and love community kids and their families as you work with them for an entire summer.  See life change first hand as youth have the chance to love children with Jesus’ love.


Help youth engage in ministry by leading building and remodeling projects in the community. Work alongside community members. Refine your project development skills including supply ordering, budgeting and on-site management. Teach students the value of good work and tangible skills in construction. See the lasting impact of service on both community members and participants.


Lead ministry as you reach out to 10-14 year olds in the community by leading a daily sports camp program. Serve as head coach while participants plan and facilitate drills and scrimmages in a variety of sports. Explore valuable character traits found in the Bible and empower participants in leading small group discussions. Coordinate morning service opportunities for participants.


Utility Staff begin the summer assigned to a region, not a specific community. Be a “jack of all trades” and serve in a variety of areas. Be trained for several positions and offer support to Site Coordinators. Coordinate daily service activities and see participants’ lives change as they experience Christ through service. Support teams with spiritual encouragement and a servant attitude. Staff must be flexible and willing to adapt to changing roles and locations. At any point during the spring or summer, Utility Support Coordinators may be permanently placed with a team to fill an open position.


Potential summer staff must be at least one year out of high school to meet our minimum application requirements. Candidates must demonstrate good judgment and problem-solving skills, able to handle responsibility and have leadership experience. Staff should value youth and be passionate about serving. See our website for more detailed information about qualifications.
