Staff Associate/Area Director II — San Marino, CA


The area consist of ministries located in South Pasadena, San Marino, Duarte and Pasadena — the last of which acts as a social and cultural hub to its surrounding communities. Pasadena is an amazing place, just 10 miles from downtown Los Angeles. Many people know about the Rose Bowl; however, Pasadena and the surrounding cities are some of the most diverse places in Los Angeles. These cities consist of some of the best culture and history in California. One of the tricks will be growing Young Life in vastly different settings within the area and navigating complex, yet eclectic, racial and socio-economic differences. It's an amazing place with great history.
