Extremely talented and inspired culture
Area Director (Former Employee) – United States – March 30, 2016
There is no such thing as a "typical day" on Young Life staff. Employees at the Area Level tiers wear MANY hats and are often responsible for carrying out everything from local & personal fundraising, to budget/ P&L management, to trip & event planning and project management, to strategic growth planning, to volunteer recruitment, training, and supervision, to community networking & marketing, to program entertainment, to direct ministry (and all of the joys and hardships which come with mentoring today's youth), to Bible teaching and discipleship, etc.
Young Life has continued to improve their employee recruiting and training efforts which in turn continues to produce incredibly versatile, personal, and passionate leaders.
Very rewarding, schedule flexibility, never a dull day, generous benefits
Lack of structure, little opportunity for upward advancement, low salary
