Boy’s and Girl's Group Volunteer Position Details

UMA is a Christian ministry located in downtown Lynchburg. We are seeking volunteers dedicated to developing deep and lasting relationships with our youth through weekly bible studies, adventure trips, and impromptu hang-outs. We currently have groups that meet weekly on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday evenings and they range in ages from elementary through high school students.

Responsibilities

  • Capable of attending and occasionally leading (if desired) one of our weekly mentoring small groups.

  • Able to work with a team of other volunteers to create an environment in which adults and youth can build healthy relationships and talk about Christ.

  • Participate in recreational activities to interact and build relationships with our youth. (ex. basketball, football, trust activities, games, etc…).

  • Join us on adventure trips -- no skills needed, just relationship building.

  • Above all, our desire is to build relationships and share Christ. As much as we love a good plan we want to see you be able to be flexible to follow where the Spirit leads!

Requirements

  • Must be a committed follower of Christ.

  • Should have prior youth leadership experience and skills.

  • Must have own reliable transportation.

  • Must be excited to commit to building relationships with awesome girls and boys, not punching a time clock!

  • Reliability and consistency is very important, we would prefer volunteers who would be interested in serving for an entire year or longer, however it is not a requirement.

If you are okay with the above information, you love Jesus, young people, fun and the awesome outdoors… YOU SHOULD VOLUNTEER WITH UMA! Please send us an email at volunteer@urbanmountainadventures.org for more information and to schedule a time to meet up with us!
