Interested in joining the YWAM Oxford family for a season? Other than doing one of our many trainings and schools, the best way to get involved with us it to become part of our volunteer staff team. We’re always looking for long-term staff and short-term volunteers to help us around the base with everything from grounds-keeping and maintenance to marketing and mentoring. Take a look at the options below and then get in touch with us to start the connection process.

YWAM Oxford Long Term Staff

Ever wanted to be part of a mission base that sees lives changing on a daily basis? Why not come and join us as a YWAM Oxford staff. We have a great family of passionate people here who you can share life with. We are always looking for people to help staff our schools and help maintain the base. We have a weekly staff cost which includes all food, accommodation, internet and power. All staff receive leadership training and mentoring in our Leadership Support and Mentoring course (LSM), which is a registered U Of N course.

Short Term Help

We often need people to drop in and help for anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. It’s not uncommon for travelers to give us a hand while they are enjoying their extended journey around this beautiful country. As with all YWAM Oxford staff, short term volunteers pay a reasonably priced base fee and are provided accommodation, internet access and meals during the their time working on base. If you are interested in donating some of your time here at YWAM Oxford please get in touch to find out about our current needs and availability.

Longer Term Mission Builders

We often have longer-term projects around the base and a thus a need for longer-term volunteer staff who have specific skills they’d like to contribute. Mission Builders are people who aren’t in YWAM but still wish to give their time and abilities to missions. There are many benefits of joining our family for a period of one to six months and we encourage you to consider partnering with us in this way. If you have specific trade or maintenance skills, ministry passions, culinary talent or creative abilities please get in touch to find out more.
