Volunteering for Youth 2019 is one of the best ways to serve the young people of the United Methodist Church.
Becoming a volunteer is simple:
Who can volunteer?
Anyone can volunteer as long as you are 19 years of age or older.
Do I Get to Choose Where I Want to Volunteer During Youth 2019?
We offer volunteers three different placement options. While we cannot guarantee what job you will do from day to day, we will do our best to place you somewhere you are able to use your talents.
What About Food? How Am I supposed to eat during all of this?
Snacks will be provided during every shift. Those who work more than a four-hour shift each day will receive a meal voucher.
Where will I stay?
All volunteers are responsible for their own lodging during YOUTH 2019. We offer a variety of hotels and prices for you to choose from. In order to reduce your cost we can pair you with another volunteer as a roommate. If you have someone in mind you would like to room with please list them on your application.
What if I am a local volunteer and do not need lodging?
Local volunteers, who plan to drive to the Event each day, will receive parking vouchers. You are considered a local volunteer if your home/church address is within 50 miles of the Kansas City Convention Center.
Do I Get to attend Youth 2019 For Free?
Out of town Youth 2019 Volunteers will receive a reduced registration rate, but are still required to register and pay for the Event. When volunteers are not on duty they are invited to take part in all that YOUTH 2019 has to offer, including many of the adult education workshops, the exhibits, and evening worship.
Local volunteers (within 50 miles of downtown Kansas City) can receive a complimentary registration.
When do I need to arrive in Kansas City?
Training for all volunteers will begin on Wednesday, July 10, 2019 at 8am. Please plan to arrive on or before that date and time. As the event draws closer we will provide a more detailed schedule.
What if I Want to Volunteer But Can’t Stay for the Entirety of YOUTH 2019?
While we encourage everyone to apply, please know that first choice will be given to those who can commit to the entire event (working shifts every day)
Volunteering at YOUTH 2019 is not considered employment by Discipleship Ministries. We are thankful that you would choose to give your time and talents at our event!
