What are you doing this summer?

Love Montreat? Consider joining our Summer Staff. In order to keep the ministry of the conference center running throughout the summer months, we require the help of about 120 Summer Staff who like to make a difference, work and play hard. These are seasonal positions for those who are at least one year out of high school. In addition, there are minimum age requirements for some positions.

Other Ways to Participate

We have opportunities for short-term and long-term volunteers.

Throughout the year, more than 300 amazing volunteers generously give their time and special skills across all areas of Montreat Conference Center’s ministry. Judging by their smiles, enthusiasm, and their return every year, being a Montreat Volunteer is a fun way to spend your free time while you are here.
