“It’s Like Summer Staff For 9-Months”

Rachel Yowell January 12, 2021

Are you a college senior wondering what’s next after graduation? Do you wish you had more time to discern your calling and career? Do you want to build a deeper foundation in Christ to launch well into the season after college?

If so, consider joining us in Greensboro, NC for the Greensboro Fellows Program.  The Greensboro Fellows is a 9-month program (Sept-May) focusing on spiritual and professional development. Dozens of Young Life leaders have gone through the program loved it!

Reflections from a Former Fellow

“As a Young Life leader, I experienced great community in college! However, I was very nervous about what community was going to be like in the “real world” after graduation. I wanted to stay strong in my faith, and continue growing, as I had in college. I also wasn’t totally sure what I wanted to do career-wise, and wanted more time to discern that in a meaningful way. When I heard about the Greensboro Fellows Program, I knew that it was the right next step for me! The Fellows Program had the same rich, intentional community I had experienced as part of Young Life Summer Staff, but it was for nine months instead of just one!

The Fellows have jobs in many different career fields; ministry, nonprofits, technology, communications, education, healthcare, etc. It is a great way to gain invaluable experience in a career field that interests you, whether you know exactly what you want to do or not! It is a great opportunity to grow spiritually, personally, professionally. Taking this year to invest in those areas of your life will impact eternity!”
