TeenStreet  brings together a great team of people.

You could be one of them!

Come and serve with us –  3rd – 9th August at Capernwray Hall, Carnforth.

TeenStreet UK as an event cannot happen without the generous and sacrificial support of the Service Team.

The Service Team consists of anyone 18 and over, some these roles are behind the scenes and others work directly with the teens. This includes housekeeping, night patrol, setting up ahead of the event, organising sports …. the list goes on. Some teens have come away from a week at TeenStreet and been most impacted by the people sacrificing their time to clean up after them!

We appreciate the work the service team do, and would like to build into their lives at the same time. This starts with our pre-event training, details of which can be found below.

During the week of TeenStreet service team members can look forward to having fun with their team and participating in small group Bible studies together. Come and make new friends, join in with exciting games and activities, and enjoy the after-hours mocktail bar and lounge!

What to expect on a team

Kitchen Assistant

Kitchen assistant helps the chef with preparing meals and packing down and washing up afterwards. Shifts are split across morning and afternoon; you will also have time to join in with the programme and take some time for yourself during the week. You will be required to complete a Level 1 Food Hygiene certificate ahead of the event.


Dining Hall Team

Dining Hall team help with washing up after meals, clearing tables and keeping the dining hall clean. There is no cooking involved! Shifts are split across morning and afternoon, giving you time to join in with the programme, have some free time and to make new friends. You will be required to complete a Level 1 Food Hygiene certificate ahead of the event.


Sports Team

The Sports team organise and run a fun and varied sports programme for the week, supported by the Sports Team Leads and the Programme Team Lead who they will meet with regularly during the week. The team will also be involved in running our RAG (Raise and Give) event one afternoon.


Information Desk

The Info Desk team are there to answer queries from teens and adults about the week and how it is running. Some things they may be asked are details of the programme, seminars and workshops, new wristbands/manuals/badges etc., getting hold of first aiders in the case of injury. The Info Desk  will also be the place for any lost items for teens and adults to come and collect. The team will know the programme inside-out and will be kept up to date with any last-minute changes!


The Beehive Staff

The Beehive Staff serve soft drinks and ice cream each evening. Staff will spend time interacting with teens and adult, talking, and making drinks and milkshakes, and serving ice cream. Each team member will be trained in The Beehive, and required to complete a Level 1 Food Hygiene certificate ahead of the event.


First Aiders

First Aiders must have an up to date First Aid certificate. They look after injuries throughout the week and keep an up-to-date record in the logbook. The First Aid Team Lead will coordinate the team to ensure someone is on duty at all times during the day, and available overnight in an emergency; particularly if a trip to A&E is needed.

Small group Leaders - Coaches and Assistant Coaches

Teenagers need a caring adult as a listening ear, example, authority figure and challenge-giver. Each coach is responsible for the teens in one NET group which consists of up to six teenagers of the same gender.

Coaches are responsible for leading the NET times (Bible study and small group time), meeting with their group in free time, keeping their teens accountable, spending personal time with each teen and being a friend.

Each coach will meet with their Ministry & Mentoring couple (M&Ms) each day and will have access to training and other resources both during and ahead of the event. 

Coaches must be over 20, love Jesus and be ready for an intense adventure! If you are 18+ and would like to help run a small group, come as an Assistant Coach!

Contrary to what many people believe, this generation of teens desires to connect with people that have some experience in life. This can be missing in their home life as some do not have good adult role models.

Coaches are a vital part of TeenStreet UK’s purpose. TeenStreet UK aims to build up Churches by providing a positive community for teens to be part of throughout the year, and this is done through the youth leaders. TeenStreet UK provides a unique opportunity for youth leaders to really interact with their youth and develop a trusting relationship. We want the interaction between teens and their leaders to continue after the event, as part of our year-round vision. 

Application Process

If you would like to volunteer for the service team or as a Coach or Assistant Coach, make sure you sign up on our registration system which will enable us to process your details and request for a particular team.

Every adult at TeenStreet UK is required to provide details of a referee who we will contact. Other required checks will also be completed before approving the application, such as DBS check. You will then be directed to the place where you can pay whatever fees are due.

DBS Checks

Every adult onsite at TeenStreet UK is required to have a valid enhanced DBS certificate. If you have a valid and relevant DBS that is on the update service we may be able to accept this.

If you apply to serve at TeenStreet UK and do not have a current and relevant DBS on the update service, you will be contacted with further details. There will be a charge of £15 for this service and we recommend that you register it with the update service so as to be valid for future TeenStreet UK events.
