For many, DTS is the beginning of the adventure with Jesus—joining staff is the extension of it. It's your chance to join a dynamic, fun-loving community that is passionate about reaching the nations for Jesus.
Joining staff at YWAM Mazatlan is easy. The first step is to complete our Artios Internship, a specialized program tailored to give you that “more” you are looking for. Then, once completed, you'll be able to apply to join us as a full-time staff member!
Our staffing experience is unique. You’ll be living and working alongside passionate YWAMers from different nations, cultures, and backgrounds, all focused on one thing: “To know God and make him known."
What better way to continue your missionary journey than becoming a full-time staff member with YWAM?
You must complete our 12-week Artios Internship before you can officially join us on staff.
During the internship you'll have the chance to apply to be a full-time staff member.
Now that you're better equipped to pursue your missionary calling, you'll officially join our staff team and together we'll work to mobilize this generation for the Great Commission!
"ARTIOS" (ar-tay-ohs) is a Greek word that means to be complete and ready, because you’ve been prepared. That's exactly what our 12-week Artios Internship is designed to do—prepare you to join us on staff.
The Artios Internship was created to give you a firsthand, on-the-job experience of what it's like to be staff at YWAM Mazatlan. Our goal is to help further develop godly character in you while focusing on your leadership skills. By the end of it, you'll be prepared and ready to apply to join us on staff.
Artios is designed to be focused and intentional, allowing you time to understand our YWAM campus and culture before applying to be on Staff.
Daily classes to help develop godly character while focusing on your leadership skills.
You’ll fully integrate with our YWAM community and experience firsthand what it’s like to be a missionary on the field.
Our YWAM campus is a dynamic "live/learn" environment, meaning we live together and learn together at the same time. It's what will make your internship more impactful.
We want to prepare you to thrive wherever God calls you. The internship will offer key leadership teachings as well as practical tips and advice for all aspects of your life.
The work training, along with the rich teaching times, will help you become fully prepared to be staff at YWAM Mazatlan if you choose to do so after the internship.
As an Artios intern you'll not only be focusing on developing your leadership skills in the classroom, but also get the chance to apply what you’re learning in real, practical ways during your service placement.
There are two main departments where Artios interns serve: Community Life (CL) and Facilities.
Within CL, intern roles include working in Hospitality and the Kitchen. In Facilities, roles include working in Maintenance, Transport, and Base Cleaning. Roles within other departments do become available from time to time, so it's possible you could be placed in a department outside of CL and Facilities.
The HR department will assign your service role. You’ll be expected to work in that role for the duration of the 12 weeks.
The Artios schedule is designed to allow you to get the most out of the 12-week internship. Your day will be divided between attending campus-wide events like worship, intercession and Staff Connect, working in a service role, and going to class. Apart from one evening a week, the rest of your evenings and most weekends will be free.
