TeenStreet  brings together a great team of people.

You could be one of them!

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 cooking, cleaning, running workshops or small groups, setting up ahead of the event, organising sports, driving, shopping, working in the admin office, organising teams in the months beforehand…. 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!

If you are 18+ and would like to be on the Service Team, you could be involved in any of these areas: 

  • Art Zone (encouraging teens to explore art)
  • Kitchen Staff
  • Sports Team (running daily activities and games)
  • Information Desk
  • Mocktail lounge staff
  • Make-up Artist
  • Assistant Coach

 

If you are 20+ and would like to be on the Service Team, you could be involved in any of these areas: 

  • Night security
  • Art Zone (encouraging teens to explore art)
  • Kitchen Staff
  • Sports Team (running daily activities and games)
  • Information Desk
  • Mocktail Lounge Staff
  • Make-up Artist
  • First Aider
  • Coach

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. 

Coaches must be over 20, love Jesus and be ready for an intense adventure! We really need and appreciate a wide range of ages. 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. 

If you would like to volunteer for the service team, the initial ticket is free on our registration system which will enable us to process your details and request for a particular team.

Every service team member 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.

Once you have been accepted onto the service team you will be provided with details to pay for your ticket.

 

We ask that the Service Team members cover the minimal costs for accommodation and catering costs. If you would be able to consider covering more than this costs it would enable the best programme to be created for as many teens as possible.

Camping – £100

Accommodation block(shared room) – £180

 

*Due to the nature of the venue, there are no individual rooms available.

We want to help you be the most effective member of the Service Team you can be!

This means providing you with some training ahead of the event so you know what to expect, what your role is, and how to fulfil it to the best of your abilities.

Training sessions are required for you to come to TeenStreet, and we will ask about this during your application process.

All training is online this year. Links to the courses and Zoom calls will be sent out nearer the time.

You do not need to attend Coaches' training if you are not working directly with teens.
