You do not have to be young to reach young people, you just have to be a person! We currently need people in a huge range of roles; helping with sports ministry and The Cage, behind the scenes admin and organisation, stewarding, detached work and most certainly praying. Volunteers also make up the Council of Reference and the Steering Group (Trustees). If you or someone you know are willing to give some of your time (even as little as a couple of hours a month) to either North East Scotland Youth for Christ's activities or to young people in your own church please contact our office, or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Our volunteers are from varied backgrounds and of all ages from 16 upwards and some of our helpers are under 16 years old.

All our volunteers are offered training. This includes the basic essentials such as child protection training and more specific training for their role. In addition to our own training and support, all volunteers are encouraged to join in Christian fellowship and attend youth leaders' training events such as Deep Impact, which will often help subsidise.

Take a gap year

British Youth for Christ offers a wide range of gap year opportunities for young people seeking to serve God. They don't even have to a year long!

Are you aged 17-30 and interested in taking a year out to God's work? Do you have a passion for sharing the Good News with young people and a passion for music, dance, football, basketball, skating or something else? Are you a church looking for gap year volunteers to help with your youth mission? Please contact us or visit https://yfc.co.uk/theyearout/.


Please pray for our ministry; that God will guide us to do the things he needs done and that we have the necessary people and resources. You can find specific points for prayer on our prayer pages. You can also sign up to our mailing list by clicking on the envelope to the right or emailing This email address is being protected from spambots.
