Build Supportive Relationships with Youth in Manhattan

About this Opportunity

Young Life Manhattan is looking for caring Christian adults who are interested in building authentic relationships with youth from middle school to college age in neighborhoods across the island.

Leaders walk alongside staff in all ministry activities as well as develop one-on-one relationships with young people. Leaders will serve 5-10hrs a week supporting and leading local ministry activities and events, actively seeking to build new relationships with youth, and mentoring 2-3 young people from ministry.

Volunteers can serve in Chelsea, Harlem, Hell's Kitchen, Lower East Side, Tribeca/Battery Park, Upper East Side, Upper West Side, and Washington Heights.


Leaders must go through formal and informal training. Leaders are asked to submit to a background check, as well as read and sign off in agreement with Young Life’s faith and conduct policies.


Because of the nature of this role, we ask that all interested volunteers be able to commit to a minimum of 2 years as a Leader.
