Young Life Military is looking for those with a heart to serve and a desire to grow in their walks with Christ. ​ We are excited for you to consider the possibility of joining us for a summer or long-term internship.

Our interns are accepted through Young Life and will work with an experienced Young Life Military/Club Beyond staff person. ​ Interns have the opportunity to serve either in the United States or in Europe. The Club Beyond supervising staff person gives direction and trains the intern as they assist with many aspects of the ministry. ​ Activities include camps, clubs, Bible studies as well as just "hanging out" with kids and modeling a personal example of Jesus Christ. ​ A desire to love and serve kids should be a priority.

This is where you can be the difference in a military teen’s life! By being in their world, walking alongside them, and creating a community where they experience the truth of God’s love and purpose for them, our staff provide a safe space where teens of military families can develop friendships and connections to experience laughter, build hope and generate resiliency.

We are currently providing incarnational ministry at many military installations around the world. You will have the opportunity to assist the overall Young Life Military​ program, known as Club Beyond, which is ecumenically focused and outreach-oriented.


  • Training: Meet weekly with supervising staff using Club Beyond team agenda tools.
  • Direct Ministry:​ Participate in leadership with a team to conduct Club Beyond club and small group ministry to teens with excellence.
  • Spiritual Development:​ Develop a 90-day personal growth plan that fosters a vibrant spiritual life including time for solitude, retreat, reflection, prayer, and a sincere commitment to understanding God’s Word. Attend Chapel on installation as often as you are in community.
  • Leadership Development: Attend volunteer leader meetings. Meet weekly with one volunteer to discuss their involvement in Club Beyond. Meet with your supervisor and learn how to recruit and train new leaders and build a leadership team that reflects the diversity of the community.
  • Resource Development:​ Discuss with your supervisor raising financial support, both the benefits and the challenges. Communicate monthly updates with personal donor partners.
  • Be a role model (incarnational) and assist with developing community outreach to "unchurched" teens, discipleship to believing teens, and leading and equipping volunteers for "hands-on" middle and high school Christian youth ministry.
  • Be respectful of and embrace a community that is deeply influenced by a military culture.
  • In this ministry, you will need to live out the Club Beyond Core Value Statement:

    Club Beyond is a Christ-centered community of leaders with an exclusively military focus. Our methods are incarnational, and our perspective is ecumenical. We leverage strategic partnerships for the greatest results. We value professionalism from our staff and excellence in our stewardship.​
