Apply People that have already been Trip Leaders do not need to apply again. They will return by invite only. Being a Humanitarian XP Trip Leader is... ...All about the love. For a lot of kids, it’s the first time in their lives that they can completely disconnect from their normal routines and really consider the man or woman they are becoming. When the Trip Leaders decide to see them the way that God sees them, and the kids see themselves through the eyes of their Trip Leader...everything is different from that moment on. AmyHumanitarian Experience CEO ...A chance to work with incredible youth who will change your life, and I’m not using that phrase lightly. I’m seriously obsessed with these kids, and in return I expect our Trip Leaders to keep up with them. The biggest role a Trip Leader faces is to be a logistical wizard, a confidant, a homie, a leader, a hype artist, a spiritual giant and their best friend--all at the same time. Simple as that. Jordan Trip Leader Director ...Going to cool places, but in reality, that turns out to be the thing you care about the least. You have 19 kids who are looking to you to learn the teenage lingo, have fun with them and keep them safe, being able to help them see powerful things in themselves and help them grow closer to Christ--honestly, that’s the best part.
