Volunteer Opportunities

At YWAM Vancouver, we believe that discipleship is the core of everything we do in YWAM. As such, we place a high priority on discipling others while also maintaining a mindset of being discipled. We have a strong pioneering spirit and welcome and support those who have a desire to see the dreams that God has placed in them come to life. In order to keep our pioneers strong and healthy, we also highly value those who are gifted in creating healthy and sustainable environments within our community.

We are a smaller base, so we try our best to have a tight knit community. We value the individuality and uniqueness of our volunteers, acknowledging that each of them has a story, a perspective, and gifts to bring to the kingdom of God.

If you're interested in becoming part of our YWAM Vancouver team, then keep on scrolling to find out a few of the volunteer positions we’re offering at the moment. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to get in touch with us.


If you’ve completed your DTS and have positive references, we’d love to have you be a part of our DTS/SDTS team.

Secondary Schools

If you’ve completed your DTS, the related secondary school (SBS, SOMLD, etc), and have positive references, we’d love to have you be a part of our team.

Mission Adventures

Throughout the year we welcome and host teams of youth and young adults to Vancouver for a ‘taste’ of urban missions. If you have a heart for working with teens, meeting new people, urban ministry, the city of Vancouver, and Missions, joining our MA team may be a good fit for you.

Mobilization Team

Do you love to rally people to a cause? We are looking people who love people, public speaking, travel and talking about what God is doing around the world in missions. YWAM Vancouver is developing a team focused on mobilizing people into short and long-term missions involvement. If you’ve done a DTS and you’d like to know more about this team please contact us. Currently, we have a specific need for someone with a real heart for missions that also possesses a strong organizational skill set. Someone who would love to contact schools and churches and setting up recruiting engagements. This person would also help keep track of potential contacts, engagement times and group information. In addition to these tasks, they would desire to travel to various locations, setting up booth and promotional information at schools and churches, being involved in public speaking; sharing about missions and your own involvement in missions, answering questions, and giving youth information about the ways they can be involved in missions.

Specific Needs

We have some needs here at YWAM Vancouver that may require specific training/experience in order for us to function at our highest level.
For these areas, the training requirements are specified. We would love to have you join us! Please feel free to contact us with any questions.

Book Keeper/Accountant

At YWAM Vancouver we sing about our unsung heroes. Infrastructure people are vital to the health of our organization. If you have this skill set and you would like to know more about this opportunity please contact us.

Hospitality Coordinator

Do you like hosting visitors and helping them feel welcome in a new place? Are you good at shopping, baking, and organizing events? If you have a background and interest in hospitality please consider getting some more information on this position from us.

A bonus for this position would be someone willing to stay long term. This is because we all rent houses from landlords outside of YWAM and it is better for them to deal with a familiar face as opposed to dealing with new people every few months.

Human Resources

In YWAM our greatest asset is our people, and we want to be sure to take good care of them. We need a person with strong administrative and communication skills who can plan, recruit, and manage our team. You don’t need any HR training or experience, just a willingness to learn and contribute – we will train! Completion of a DTS is required.

Due to the nature of this position, we would love it if you would be willing to stay long term (1-2 years at least).

Social Media Team

We are looking to add more creative minds to our social media team. We are looking for people who have had either training or adequate experience in: 

Video, photography, and/or marketing.

If you have an eye for detail, are creative, work well in a team, and have experience in these fields, we would love to have you join our Social Media team.
