Interested in joining our team?

Youth With A Mission (YWAM) is one of the largest Christian charitable organizations with over 18,000 staff volunteers worldwide. With a wide variety of training events, service opportunities and volunteer opportunities it is estimated that 4.25 million people have been involved with YWAM since it began in 1960!

YWAM does not pay its staff. Most of our volunteers meet their financial needs by partnering with friends and churches who support their ministry, while others hold an additional paying job for financial or ministry reasons. If you are a YWAMer looking to join a team full-time, an alumni who wants to stay connected through service, or someone who wants to contribute time and skills to YWAM then one of these opportunities may be right for you.

YWAM Vancouver

At YWAM Vancouver, we believe that DTS 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. 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 have the ability to be more relational in how we operate. We value the individuality and uniqueness of our staff, acknowledging that each of us has a story and a perspective and gifts to bring to the kingdom of God.

If any of this sounds good to you, keep on scrolling to find out a few of the staffing positions we’re offering at the moment. If this just gave you more questions, then get in touch with us below!

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.


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

Summer Internship

Throughout the summer, YWAM Vancouver hosts church groups who come to partner with us to do Urban Ministry here in the city. Our Summer Interns will help support our long term staff in leading these groups. They will gain hands on ministry and leadership experience, get to participate in urban outreach with the teams, and get to meet tons of cool people, both through the teams that come, as well as through the outreaches.

If you are 18 or over and interested in working with youth and mobilizing the church into urban missions this is for you!

Dates: June 14 – July 24, 2017
Cost: $950 (includes food*, housing, transportation and ministry trips)
*Food is provided during the Internship Training and during the Summer Program Weeks. On the weekends, leftovers may be available, but ultimately, food on the weekends is the Intern’s own responsibility.
