Serve - Connect - Grow.

XLR8 Youth is only able to do what it does because of awesome volunteers - just like you. Without the tireless help of so many amazing people, we would not be able to reach as many youth as we currently do - and we are always looking for more youth, young adults & adults who are willing to help out!

If you are interested in serving with us - which is an incredible opportunity to be a part of what we do at XLR8, to learn new skills, and to build relationships with some pretty awesome people - please read over the teams descriptions and fill out the contact form found via the link below.

XLR8 Leadership

This is our core team of small group leaders & team leads who make every youth night possible by connecting with youth and ensuring every aspect of their team runs smoothly. This team operates directly under the XLR8 Staff, and is the forefront of all we do at XLR8 Youth. As such, there are a number of requirements to which each member of this team must adhere:

1. You must be in grade 10 or higher

2. You must be willing to commit to showing up to 80% of our youth events

3. You must be pursuing an active relationship with God

5. You must be willing to spend your friday nights (or other nights for HP leaders) connecting with your small group/team each week. This means that when youth are around, our expectation is that you will be interacting with them - not with your friends, other leaders or on your phone. 

6. You must be willing to serve XLR8 Youth under the leadership & guidance of the XLR8 Staff & Leadership Team, open to the input, challenge & correction of the pastors & staff
