YouthCompass: Communications Director (Remote)

NOTE: This is a missionary role and personal fundraising is required.

YouthCompass works with international middle and high school students living outside of their passport countries. These teens are a part of over 250,000 young people attending international schools around the world. Most schools these students attend have students from 50 different nations, offering a rich cross-cultural environment and an opportunity to connect with the world in one place.

YouthCompass seeks to address the unique needs of mobile teens by providing caring adult role models who assist them in navigating life. Through regular events, service projects and open dialog on faith and belief, we give students the opportunity to belong and to grow: a fun community to be who they are and the chance to determine who they want to be.

Our leaders walk with students, entering their world and loving them unconditionally – modeling respect, trust and friendship. These values reflect our commitment to Jesus Christ. We are able to be a true friend in the midst of cultural transition, coming alongside those that are often challenged with the difficult questions of adolescence in a cross-cultural and mobile environment.

YouthCompass encourages discussions regarding faith and its role in life. We are dedicated to exploring these subjects in a spirit of open dialog with students, caring for students regardless of their religious background or experience.

Through regular events and service projects, we give students the opportunity to celebrate life together in a fun, safe and supervised environment: we offer them a place to belong.
