COMMUNITY LIFE

Gathering more than 4000 strangers in an unfamiliar place and helping them quickly form a community of respect, safety, and welcome is no simple task! And yet the Community Life Ministry Team for the 2019 Presbyterian Youth Triennium is charged to do just that. The Community Life Team is seeking volunteers who can commit themselves to serving at the Triennium in the following ways:

RESIDENCE HALL COORDINATOR

A Residence Hall Coordinator (RHC) lives in a Purdue University residence hall and is often the first person to whom participants turn for help. Working under the leadership of a Conference Dean, the RHC assumes major responsibility for maintaining a positive and healthy environment in the residence hall, assuring the welcome and safety of all. The RHC is able to respond with grace to situations as they arise, remaining a calm and reassuring presence in times of stress. We expect to need 24-30 Residence Hall Coordinators for the event.

CARE TEAM

A Care Team member is a friendly, welcoming presence at all scheduled Triennium events (such as recreation, worship, free time, and others). Wearing distinctive tee shirts, a Care Team member is easily spotted by participants who need help. The Care Team member may be called upon to help ill or injured participants locate the EMTs or to be in touch with their adult advisors. For a young person who feels lost or lonely in the middle of the mob, the sight of that Care Team member will be a sign of welcome and hope. We expect to need 15-20 people to serve as members of the Care Team. You can find a complete description of Care Team responsibilities here.
