Description:

​This area director role is pivotal to the private school and Indianapolis community.

Responsibilities:

  • ​Partner with the executive parent committee to fundraise the local budget, execute tasks that sustain and promote health within the area for years to come. 
  • Recruit, train and grow a healthy team of volunteers that represent the cultural dynamic of the schools represented.
  • Work with the part-time staff associate to execute club events, Campaigners Bible studies, and camping events for the school year.
  • Spearhead the effort to develop relationships with new kids, current kids, and ones who are looking to be engaged further in their faith.

Qualifications:

  • ​Strong and mature faith in Jesus Christ.
  • Sensitive to the Catholic faith and the needs of the Catholic community.
  • A willingness to recruit volunteers who reflect the school culture. 
  • A passion and excitement to work with affluent adults and kids. 
  • Missional mindset. Looking to be the example of healthy ministry to the committee, leaders, and private school community. 
  • Young Life experience is very helpful but not required. 
  • A self-aware, empathetic and resilient individual who is in tune with personal strengths and weaknesses. 
  • A student — constantly learning ways to impact the area, region and the people around him or her.
  • A strong fund raiser who is willing to directly ask for money from local parents, churches and businesses. A lot of the funding comes from personal relationships. 
  • An ability to raise and grow a personal donor base.
  • A person who has perseverance and is willing to step up to challenges that can be roadblocks in the ministry. 
  • A good communicator who helps people grow in their faith and ownership of the ministry. 
  • An ability to continually pursue adults, kids and leaders ... going to them and not waiting for them to come to you.
  • Willingness to be innovative both in the region and in the area. Are you willing to try something new even if it is hard?

Benefits:

​Full-time position with Young Life's benefits package.
