Staff Associate — Arvada, CO


​Arvada Young Life is currently looking for a staff associate. The focus of the staff position is to develop ministry teams within the southeastern part or our city.

Because of the gentrification that is happening in Denver, southeast Arvada/Westminster is becoming the most diverse area within our city with more than half of the schools' populations being Hispanic. This southeast area has three public high schools (including one alternative), four middle schools, and one charter school.

The staff associate will develop new ministries at schools within the area. Because of the nature of this position we are specifically looking for someone who has an entrepreneur spirit and who speaks Spanish. Arvada already has a sweet community, healthy ministry, and an awesome small-town feel in a rather large Denver suburb. We are looking for someone who can add value to our city by reaching out to a diverse population of unreached kids. The staff associate will work directly with the area director to ensure vision and direction is passed on throughout local teams.
