Adult Staff Applicant:
Thank you for your interest in serving as volunteer adult staff at one of the 2018 Youth to Youth International Summer Training Conferences.
Youth to Youth has been the premiere youth development program since its inception in 1982. As adults you will come away from conference rejuvenated by positive, drug free teens and a true partnership of teens and adults working together. The staff training for conference will equip you with the knowledge and skills (and staff manual!) for you to take back to your community and share with others.
As a member of the Adult Staff, your conference fee is waived. We appreciate the re-working of your schedule and the commitment to teens. This should allow your community and/or school to send another adult to participate in the conference and accompany the youth participants from your area as you will already be at the conference site.
For the safety of our participants we do require that ALL adult staff have current background checks. Information about this process will be emailed to you after your application is submitted.
To be eligible to serve as adult staff, you must meet the following criteria by Summer 2018:
- Have completed your 2nd year in college or be at least 20 years old.
- Be available for the entire mandatory staff training sessions, entire conference and closing. If you need a letter describing the program and requesting your employer or school to release you for the week of the conference, please let us know.
- Be willing to fulfill the Youth to Youth conference staff responsibilities (below).
Adult staff may also conduct workshops at the conference. If interested please submit a workshop application. We encourage you to develop and present workshops with teen leaders if possible. If selected as adult staff, you will be notified as to whether we’d like you to present the workshop at the conference.
