Why we need and love volunteers at VCYC!

VCYC takes a massive community of people to help put it all together. Each year we are blessed with volunteers who generously give their time and energy to serve the youth of Victoria so that they have the opportunity to hear about and respond to the truth and love of Jesus Christ.

What's involved?

It takes many different teams and skill-sets to make VCYC happen, from cooking to music to prayer ministry. Most VCYC volunteers, affectionately known as Ninjas, are divided into two teams: Food Ninjas and Event Ninjas.  Food Ninjas work closely with the Cooking Team, led by our Hospitality Coordinator, and assist with preparing and serving meals. Event Ninjas assist with set up, pack up and helping with the activities that run throughout the weekend.

Time expectations

It is expected that the Volunteers will be available for the two days of the convention beginning on Friday after lunch through till approximately 3pm on Sunday afternoon. We understand that this might be difficult for people who work, so we would ask that you pray about the possibility of asking for leave, or to talk to us about the time you do have available to give. The main briefing for all the volunteers will happen at 4pm on Friday where there will be a walkthrough of the convention and campsite, and a chance to meet the rest of the team. We have early starts and late nights but plenty of downtime during the day. 

Time expectations is largely based on the number of volunteers we get each year, so bring along your friends because the more, the better!!

Benefits of volunteering

Volunteering means that you will be part of a great team, you can form new friendships, you can serve hundreds of youth and their leaders, you can eat with people from all over Victoria, you can join in on the activities and the worship, hear great teaching from the Bible in the Main Sessions, and rest in comfortably warm bedrooms!
