Job Description

TREK is a working Christian Formation gap year program designed for 18 to 24 year olds seeking personal and spiritual growth while working in a seasonal job at Snow Mountain Ranch. 

Deadline to apply is July 12, 2019!

Program Dates: August 12, 2019 - May 5, 2020

What do you mean by “employment based”? 
As a participant in TREK, you will also be a full-time, paid seasonal employee at Snow Mountain Ranch, YMCA of the Rockies. You will work a 40-hour work in one of Snow Mountain Ranch’s hospitality and mission focused departments.

What is “Christian Formation”? 
Christian Formation is the process of being formed into the image of Christ. It is a life-long journey of holistic transformation in Spirit, Mind and Body as one learns to live out the characteristics of Christ in their individuality and community. This is the ultimate goal of TREK; our hope is that when you leave Snow Mountain Ranch, you are closer God and more like Christ than when you arrived.

Why do you use the word “experience”? 
TREK is meant to be more than a class or course, it is an experience of a variety of interrelated growth opportunities designed to stretch the participant spiritually, mentally and physically all in the context of community. Some of the things you will encounter during the TREK experience are: discussions around the basics of the Christian faith, exploring what it means to be “Christ-like,” engaging the natural environment of Colorado through outdoor adventure (hiking, climbing, camping, etc.), learning to live with others from around the U.S. and the world, working a full-time job, exploring who you are and where you come from, assessing your strengths, etc.
