Hagerstown Church of the Brethren and Shepherd’s Spring Outdoor Ministry Center seek a Youth Worker to work with and for children, youth, and young adults in their two different settings.
Hagerstown Church of the Brethren (HCOB) responsibilities include reaching out to Hagerstown’s inner-city children. This includes leadership in and planning for a weekly Youth Club, which is an outreach program of the church throughout the school year. Youth Club includes a Bible Study, science, art, recreation, and a snack for elementary through high school-aged youth. Improving literacy is a special goal of this program, so the volunteer will work on incorporating literacy into Youth Club activities. Service at HCOB also includes other seasonal outreach activities sponsored by the church for our neighborhood.
While at Shepherd’s Spring, the volunteer will serve in planning and leadership roles with the Christian Summer Camp program. Opportunities will also exist within other educational and youth development programs, including the Heifer Global Village programs.
Volunteers should have experience with children, youth, and young adults; willingness to be creative; ability to plan and execute programs; organizational and self-motivational skills; and the ability to do physical labor.
