Pros: amazing people, you make a difference, almost every day is enjoyable
Cons: fundraising- it is very difficult, not everyone is capable of the stress it inflicts and the time that it consumes.
Young Life is an incredible place to work for. You meet wonderful people, great friends, and you truly make a difference. Your leaders are normally very adept and kindhearted, and those you work alongside are typically nothing less. The job is focused around befriending kids in school and helping to guide them through the most difficult steps and years in their lives. The only part of the job that I did not like was needing to fund raise; fund raising is stressful, it is difficult, and it requires a considerable amount of time.
