Pros

Great community workplace with a lot of flexibility to try out different positions. Top of the line benefits, which makes up for the lack of pay.

Cons

You dont' get paid too much. And you have to deal, from time to time, with outrageous requests. Sometimes you're isolated because you work in rural areas.

Advice to Management

Don't be afraid to lay down the hammer just because we're a ministry. Evaluate people based on their professional performance, not whether they're nice or not.

    I have been working at Young Life full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I think Young Life is hands down the best outreach organization that genuinely goes after kids for the sake of helping them. Volunteers and staff are surrounded by schools and community that want to help make a difference in the lives of young people.

    Cons

    Sometimes the term faith based outreach organization gets a bad rep. Some people are less open to initial conversations when they hear that we tell kids about Jesus.

    Advice to Management

    I'd recommend creating a solid plan for staff when they come on, to help them see and find their place in the mission long term.
