There are many job opportunities at YD: Summer Staff positions and Internships are available, as well as full-time and part-time positions. If any of these interest you or if you have any questions about working with YD, just contact our recruitment team – we’d love to get to know you!
Each summer YD Adventures hires a select number of talented young adults from all over the world to lead adventure trips for teens in Washington, Idaho and Oregon. The Summer Staff ministry team is an integral part of YD Adventures, which is committed to reaching today’s youth through dynamic relationships and challenging experiences.

As an Intern you get a hands-on opportunity to seek out your ministry calling! You will be integrated into our full time staff team with specific projects and responsibilities from wilderness guiding, administration, operations, community development, and retreat facilitation. You will get a full picture of the front lines of ministry!
The uniqueness of this internship is that during the spring and summer months you will be immersed in adventure based ministry, gaining wilderness and leadership skills that will last a lifetime. During the late fall and winter you will experience the longer term relational community ministry that YD has to offer.
Whether it’s the hustle and bustle of a large town or a small community, you and the leadership team will prayerfully work together in identifying which community suits you best in ministering to youth of the NW. Don’t be surprised, the adventure and community seasons each have their challenges… from challenging environments, weather, and fatigue, to challenging youth, issues, and discussions. Either way, you will be surprised on how you will grow through it all.
Our highest goals for your time with us are that you gain a greater sense of who God is and who you are in Him. We believe that as Christians our life is our ministry. God will call some to vocational ministry, others to the marketplace, and others to work in the home. Our objective is to help you explore where God is calling you to live His love out to others, and to equip you for a life of ministry.
