Staff Associate — Olympic Peninsula, WA


​Young Life Olympic Peninsula is looking for a motivated individual to join our staff team. There is tremendous opportunity on the Olympic Peninsula to reach more kids in more towns where Young Life doesn't yet exist so we can truly reach every kid. We currently have active ministry in three of the 11 small towns with more than 35 volunteer leaders and adult committee.

This position is for an energetic self-starter with excellent leadership skills and a heart for kids and leaders. Some general responsibilities are listed below, but the role will take shape as we discover the specific gifts of the individual hired for this position. Someone with less experience might develop into some of these responsibilities over time.


  • ​Participate in dynamic direct ministry with students.
  • Assist with recruitment and training of volunteer leaders. 
  • Work with the area director on area tasks and objectives. 
  • Carry out other area responsibilities as assigned.
  • Raise personal financial support.


  • ​A strong and growing relationship with Jesus Christ. 
  • Young Life leadership experience. 
  • Gifted in working with adolescents and adults. 
  • A strong desire to serve and support volunteer leaders. 
  • Willing to be trained and led. 
  • Self-motivated and pro-active worker. 
  • Professional, responsible and strong follow through. 
  • Able to communicate well in person, on the phone and over email. 
  • College degree preferred.


  • ​Ministry-related expense, mileage and cell phone reimbursement. 
  • Young Life regional training program.


​Young Life Olympic Peninsula spans an incredibly beautiful corner of the Pacific Northwest. We are an area full of small towns, many without active Young Life. We are excited to grow the impact in our communities through more adults investing in the lives of kids and adults.
