YA@GA Staff Selection
YA@GA Staff Selection
Young Adult Faith Development (ages 18-35)

Applications for YA@GA staff are now open! Check out the position descriptions and criteria for 2020 GA staff below and apply today! 

In order to do the vital work of connecting, supporting and transforming young adults and folks of all generations at General Assembly, our Co-Facilitators need additional staff to help plan and implement YA@GA programming. 

For GA 2020 in Providence, we are seeking 2 young adults (18-35) for two roles on the YA@GA team. YA@GA staff will have their entire GA experience paid for; travel, hotel, registration, and food will be covered by the UUA.

The application opens November 5th and closes December 9th. You will need to fill out some general information, give us the contact information for two references, and answer some brief essay questions. Follow these three steps to make your application process go smoothly:

  1. Read through the application (PDF) and visit the pages on GA Youth, Thrive@GA and YA@GA staff to figure out which position(s) you're applying for.

  2. Copy the essay questions for the position(s) you're applying for into a word document, email or similar place where you can draft your answers and save them. Ask two people to be your references and make sure you have their contact information.

  3. Once your essay answers are done and your references are secured, open the online application form, fill it out, copy and paste in your essay answers, and submit the form before the December 9th deadline!

You may choose to apply for more than one YA@GA position and may also apply for positions with Thrive@GA or GA Youth, if applicable. You may only be selected for one GA staff position, however.  Selection for the YA@GA staff team is done by the YA@GA Co-Facilitators in consultation with the staff of the Office of Lifespan Faith Engagement.
