I worked at Young Life part-time (More than a year)

Pros

The community is like no other. You will build life-time relationships in this organization. The work is meaningful, you are tangibly making a difference in teens lives. Also, it's fun!!

Cons

It's easy to burn-out because the "work-load" is never-ending. You have to be good at setting boundaries or it takes up your entire life. Also, you have to fundraise a lot.

Advice to Management

When hiring new staff, maybe try not letting them work in the field until they have had adequate training (as opposed to training them as they work) Especially with regards to fundraising. Also, don't hire part-time staff. It doesn't work.
