ALIVE@Mo is for young adults seeking more than just a paycheck from a summer job. Candidates are employed in seasonal positions. They volunteer to spend their summer living in community with other young adults to explore their Christian faith. Below are some frequently asked questions, and a link to more information about the program.
- How do I enter the program?
Apply, interview and gain employment at Mo-Ranch for a summer seasonal position. All ALIVE participants are Mo-Ranch employees. During your interview, indicate to Human Resources that you would like to be considered for the ALIVE@Mo program. You will then interview with the Mo-Ranch chaplain before being admitted into the program.
- Where will I work if I am in the ALIVE@Mo Program?
There are a wide variety of seasonal positions available: dining services, housekeeping, programs, maintenance, grounds, life guarding, communication and more. For more information see our currently available seasonal positions.
- What if I'm still trying to figure out my Christian faith? Can I still participate?
All of us are on the journey of finding out who Christ is. We don't ask you to be an expert to join the program. We do ask that you be curious to learn more, and respectful of others.
- Do I need to be Presbyterian to participate?
No. Each year we welcome tens of thousands of guests through our gates. Many of them are Presbyterian, many are not. ALIVE@Mo is no different. If you would like to live and work at Mo-Ranch, and want the opportunity to seek Christ with other young adults, you are welcome.
- Where will I live?
Caleb/Fletcher House is a modern, centrally air-conditioned facility. It is divided into eight rooms, and you will likely have a roommate. Each room has its own bathroom. The central living area has Wi-Fi, a kitchen, laundry facilities and comfortable seating. All linens can be provided.
- Are there any expectations I should be aware of?
Caleb/Fletcher House is alcohol-, drug- and tobacco-free during the ALIVE@Mo Program. Also no co-habitation is allowed. Participants will take at least one excursion together to build community. All community members are expected to attend weekly house meetings. Participants will spend their first week or so deciding about other expectations/house chores/house rules/etc.
