Summer Staff

Summer Staff

Who are Summer Staff? Each year, we hire about 100 of the greatest college-age young adults and students from all over the USA to facilitate the details of our Jesus-centered mission trips. You and 2-3 other Summer Staff travel from training in Colorado to mission trip locations across the country in a Group vehicle. At each location you’ll help create a mission trip experience for up to 400 participants who come to serve a community in need. You’ll meet lifelong friends, gain hands-on work experience, and most importantly show the love and light of Jesus!

Applications for 2018 are now closed

Please check back in October for positions in 2019.

Q: Do I pick where I serve?

Nope! You will be assigned to your location(s) based upon your skills, experiences, and the needs of Group Mission Trips. Week of Hope staff serve in one city for 7 weeks, while Workcamp staff travel to 3-4 camp locations over the course of the summer. You’ll find out where you’ll be serving on the first day of Summer Staff training.

Q: Do I have to attend training?

Absolutely! Our mandatory training is a two-week long high-energy, meaningful, practical, focused information frenzy! Training begins in late May and concludes when all Summer Staff leave for their camp locations.

Q: Who will be on my crew?

Your crew will consist of 3 or 4 college-age young adults and students just like you.
