Year-Long Intern Giving



Hi, my name is Janell Kolins and I am from Allen, TX. I have a Marketing Major and Human Development Minor from University of Arkansas, but please do not ask me to call the hogs. I got involved with Young Life in high school and fell in love with camp and working behind the scenes while serving on work crew three times and being the town runner/admin on summer staff at Trail West. I love coffee, jigsaw puzzles, SNL, some friendly games of competition, and a good pun.

Sam Martin – Retail/Administrative Intern

samanthamarie270@gmail.com

I grew up in St. Louis, Missouri and got involved in Young Life my freshman year of high school. After going to camp at Castaway I fell in love with Jesus and walked with my Young Life leader as I learned what it meant to have a relationship with God. I attended college at Missouri State University in Springfield and graduated with a degree in Communications in December of 2017. After serving with Young Life in both the field and camping, I am so excited to start this new journey as a year-long! Some of my favorite things are road trips, rain, and good playlists. One thing most people don't know about me is that I have a 5 year old friend who named his pet chicken after me.

My name is Harrison McCaslin. I grew up in a suburb of Dallas, Texas called Richardson. Richardson has a population of right around 100,000 people. I went to school for two years at Northeast Wisconsin Technical College in Green Bay, Wisconsin, which is where I got an Associate’s degree in Criminal Justice. I then transferred to The University of North Texas (Go Mean Green) where I graduated with my Bachelors in Criminal Justice this past December. I got involved with Young Life as a student at UNT. Already walking in a relationship with Jesus, I decided to become a leader in early 2016 and never looked back! Something most people don’t know about me is that I love opera music, I could listen to it all day!

Austin Watts – Guest Services Intern

austinwatts22@gmail.com

I was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio. I was a part of Young Life on and off during my later years in high school. After high school I attended the local community college while trying to figure out what I was passionate about. God has since called me to ministry. I ended up transferring and graduating from Ohio Christian University with a focus in ministry. Since high school I have been involved on and off with Young Life. I led for almost two years, went on a mission trip, as well as volunteered at many camps with Young Life over the past 6 years. A fun fact about me is that I love movies and go and see just about every new (worthwhile) movie the night it comes out.
