Volunteers with a passion for supporting youth are the backbone of the Power of Hope experience.
We try to bring in 5 new volunteers each camp. Often our returning and new volunteers have had extensive PYE training in the Creative Community model. What is PYE Training? We also open up 2 volunteer spots each camp for creatively driven youth mentors (age 22 and up) who have previously attended a Power of Hope camp as a youth themselves.
We value having a strong team that a multifaceted group of youth can see themselves reflected in and connect with. We welcome racial diversity, gender diversity, intersectionality and diversity of discipline and opinion. If you come from a diverse, intersectional background, we’d love to know. While we are an arts based camp we also welcome other skill sets and passions.
We require all of our volunteers to have a current criminal record check sent to us.
To strengthen your application you may want to attend a PYE Training.
Upcoming trainings can be found HERE.
We are often on the look out for a certified lifeguards and a registered nurse. If that’s you, let us know.
