Q: How long is the Youth Rush program?

A: Upper Columbia Youth Rush summer programs are a ten-week commitment. For 2017, the dates are June 11 to August 18, 2017


Q: What if school ends after June 11 or starts before August 18?

A: That's no problem. You would come when school ends.


Q: Will we have time off?

A: Yes. There is a “home leave” weekend in the middle of the summer. Any other time off, during the summer, must be pre-approved by the conference.

Q: How much commission will I earn?

A: Commission is 35%. At the end of the program, students who complete the ten-week commitment will receive an additional 15% retroactive commission bonus, which will equal 50%.


Q: How much will the schools match my earnings?

A: Go to Scholarships and find out how much the school of your choice is willing to match what you earn.


Q: Where do we work?

A: We work in a variety of cities and towns within the Upper Columbia Conference territory, which covers eastern Washington, northeastern Oregon, and northern Idaho.


Q: Can I request a certain location?

A: Yes, however, due to program limitations in size and other factors, requests are not guaranteed. The earlier you apply and are accepted, the better your chance of a request being approved.


Q: Is housing provided? Do I have any expenses at Youth Rush?

A: Housing, transportation, and most expenses are covered for your time at Youth Rush. You are only responsible for one meal each day plus small toiletries (like shampoo and conditioner). 


Q: When is the application deadline?

A: There is not a set deadline to apply for Youth Rush. However, due to limited space, we no longer accept applicants once we are filled for each summer.  It's always a better option to apply sooner than later to ensure the best chance of getting a spot. Apply Now.


Q: Who can join?

A: Any male or female who is at least 15 years of age or older, who has a love for Jesus, and is willing to make a ten-week commitment to work hard and serve Jesus.  If you have questions about your eligibility to work, click here.
