How young or old do I have to be?
We accept applications from anyone between the ages of 14 +. Some of our programs will require you to be older, but we will make sure to let you know if that is the case.
What are the other requirements?
We require that all team members complete a criminal record check and child welfare check. Team members will also need to fill out and sign our team package and commitment forms. (It's not too bad!)
What is the commitment level?
We ask that all of our team members try to commit to a full year, with a minimum commitment of 3 hours per week. We know this does not always work out perfectly and life happens, but we ask that you try your best in not just committing to Youth One but more importantly to the young people we are hanging out with.
What is the importance of the Culture Code and Mission?
We live and breathe our culture code and mission. This is what makes or breaks us as a team and as an organization. We have labelled 12 cultural codes that we see as very valuable for the short/longterm movement and health of the organization. As a team we strive to be live this culture day in and day out. If you have any questions regarding the culture code, make sure to ask us!
