Become a Volunteer/Staff

It takes a special calling to want to move your life and family to serve as full time staff/missionaries. Perhaps you are feeling the nudge to explore what more God has for you. Take some time to explore our ministry and contact us to find out what roles are available and which ministries are seeking more staff. It is a process that we ask you take seriously and prayerfully, as will we. There is a thorough and lengthy application process. You will also be required to begin the process of support raising and other preparations prior to beginning your time on the mission field.  

There are a few avenues in which you can join our team. If you are a young adult, consider investigating our
intern programs at various sites. This can be a great way to serve, but also to learn and train as a Christian leader and missionary. If you are an adult wanting to explore opportunities to serve with us at YUGO beyond a week, check out the roles and positions available. Together we can see if there is a good fit at this point in time.

You may want to serve as a volunteer.  A volunteer does not receive pay and is for a shorter period of time. They need to pay some fees and do not receive some of the other benefits that full time staff receive. If you wish to volunteer for anything less than 2 months you would need to go through a normal
team registration process.

Or you may be considering serving as staff - either short-term or career missionary staff. As a YUGO staff member, you receive pay (from support you have raised), as well as other benefits and support from the YUGO team. This process in particular can take a long time (several months) and so please have patience as you begin to explore it all!  

Begin by exploring what positions and roles are available. Even though we welcome willing hands and hearts, we also need to be intentional and purposeful when placing staff and volunteers.
