The pastoral care team is comprised of young adults or adults (at least 19 years of age or older) who volunteer to support the ministry and work of EYE20. Applications to serve on the EYE20 Team closed in October 2019 and team members will be announced in December 2019 after reference checks are complete.
Pastoral care team positions include the following:
- Dorm crew members work closely with the pastoral care team leader to serve as residential staff in the dorms to support the adult leaders responsible for youth delegations from dioceses attending
- Event team members serve as support staff for EYE, helping where needed. Individuals serving on this team need to be flexible, efficient, and organized.
- EYE20 medical care team members support the EYE medical team throughout the event by helping in the clinic, staffing various activity areas, and responding to situations should the need arises. This is shift work, undertaken with the supervision of the medical care team leaders.
To serve as a member of the pastoral care team, applicants must be willing to submit to a criminal sexual background check; provide evidence of completing Safeguarding God’s Children Training or other comparable training (subject to review); be current on vaccinations; demonstrate experience in successful and appropriate supervision of teens in overnight situations; and be available to travel to Washington, D.C. on July 6 and depart no sooner than noon on July 11.
Volunteers are expected to provide their own transportation to the event. While volunteers do not have to pay for full event registration for the event, they are requested to contribute $120 to cover the cost of meals. Lodging will be provided.
