VOLUNTEER Positions and Descriptions

Peace Youth Counselor 
Being a Youth Counselor seems like a huge responsibility, but one that comes with great rewards, both now and in the future. Youth Counselors serve as mentors and small group leaders for Peace Youth on Sunday Nights for either middle school or high school students.
