The vision of the Seattle YFC internship program is to serve as a training ground for young leaders to grow as disciples, gain valuable experience and education as leaders and be given real life opportunities to discover and deploy their ministry giftings for Kingdom ministry to students age 11 - 19 years old. As part of the body of Christ, the vision of Youth For Christ is to see every young person in every people group in every nation have the opportunity to make an informed decision to become a follower of Jesus Christ and become a part of a local church.

Our interns are a vital part of what we do! From serving with students to providing admin support behind the scenes, we are glad to be able to partner with these young people as we fight for the future of today's youth!
