Volunteer with our
Teen Ministry

The most important thing we ask of our volunteers is for their presence; to be a witness of Christ’s love and light and to authentically share their own faith journey. We look for volunteers who are committed to learning about and confirming their own faith every day alongside our teens. People who are interested in learning more about things they don’t know, asking the tough questions, wresting with topics they don’t understand, challenging themselves and our teens to grow in their faith every day.

Faith Sharing Group Facilitators: Our biggest need is for small group leaders: people who are able to commit to leading a faith-sharing group. Don’t worry: we will provide training about how to facilitate these discussions and resources to help you break open the topics.

Special Event Team: We need people who are able to help with organizing special events, retreats and service projects along with our special events coordinator.

Youth Mass Committee: We need music and liturgy-minded people who will work with our Youth Mass coordinator to help make the 1:15 Youth Mass a liturgy that inspires and connects for our teens.

Take a look at our calendar and more program details here. Don’t be afraid to contact us to discuss where you best fit.

Requirements

Our mission wouldn’t be fulfilled unless we took care to protect the safety of those young people involved in our programs. This commitment means that all of our volunteers must receive proper awareness training and satisfy the requirements the ‘“Safeguard the Children” program from the Archdiocese:

  1. Review the Archdiocese guidelines for working with Minors
  2. Attend a Virtus awareness training session and follow all guidelines from Virtus training. You can find a session by going to www.virtusonline.org. Search for sessions in the "Los Angeles  - Our Lady of Angels Region"
  3. Complete a livescan fingerprinting through the Archdiocese and submit paperwork indicating completion.
