WHO WE ARE
Our mandate is unique: to build a force of young urban missionaries who step into the world of marginalized and vulnerable youth with the life-changing love of Jesus.
Our staff are disciplers, mentors, teachers, and specialists in community-based youth work. Come and join us. We guarantee that the Lifeteams School experience will stretch you beyond what you can imagine and engage you in a journey that will continue far beyond this year.
Students studying at Lifeteams have the benefit of also being co-registered with our main educational partner, Rocky Mountain College (RMC). This opens up the doors for applying for Canada Student Loans, receiving college-level accreditation of courses, completing diploma and degree studies built on your Lifeteams certificate, claiming high school scholarships, and applying R.E.S.P.'s to your education. Lifeteams courses can also be transferred into other Bible College programs across Canada that are "in-person" such as Columbia Bible College, leading to careers in church-based or community-based youth work. Whatever your educational dreams are, Lifeteams can provide a solid foundation to build on.
After completing Lifeteams, students may choose to continue studying with Rocky Mountain College. You may be interested in pursuing programs such as a Diploma in Counselling/Child and Youth Care with the completion of 30 more credit hours (appox. 1 year full time) or consider degrees such as a Bachelor of Arts in Human Services with a major in Counseling or Child and Youth Care, or a Bachelor of Arts in Leadership Development. Your Lifeteams certificate comprises about one year of each of these programs, all of which are delivered through RMC’s distributed learning platform. This platform allows students to study from home without needing to be on a particular campus, which makes it possible for students to work in the field while earning their credentials.
As a program of Greater Vancouver Youth Unlimited, Lifeteams draws on the skills and experience of over forty dedicated youth workers who are building relationships with marginalized youth through a variety of cutting-edge youth programs around the Vancouver area.
