Group’s Lifetree Adventures is looking for staff responsible for providing a fun, safe and organized mission trip experience and fulfilling Group’s mission at various locations across the U.S. Participants at each location will include youth (age 12 and up) and adults who come to serve communities through week-long home repair and community service projects. You would serve those youth and adults, as well as partner with local facilities, residents, and community agencies to ensure an experience that makes a positive impact.
Responsibilities include providing phenomenal customer service and creative problem-solving, strong organization and planning while demonstrating flexibility, and being a spiritual influence for others. Staff are usually energetic individuals with a desire to serve others in daily details; experience a different lifestyle (i.e. sleeping on an air mattress, living in community, and eating camp food); and travel the U.S. embracing the diversity of each location.
Each Lifetree Adventures location has a team of at least six staff. The positions available include Logistics Leaders and Service Leaders.
