Technical Support Specialist, International Programs
With 20 years of service to MSU, Darren’s passion to build cultural competency goes beyond working with international and domestic students. For the last 15 years Darren has taken summer vacation to volunteer as Camp Coordinator for the Diggins Apostolic Church youth camp. Over 300 nationwide campers ranging from 7-20 years old come for the week-long camp. Darren oversees all aspects of daily operations, managing the front office, directing more than 40 volunteers and 6 department heads, coordinating meals and stocking the camp’s store — all the while ensuring campers are having the time of their lives. Darren says, ‘the goal of our youth camp is to equip young people with a strong biblical knowledge, help others that are in need, and have an unforgettable week of fun.”
We are proud to recognize Darren Young as May’s Public Affairs Staff Spotlight for implementing and modeling the pillars of public affairs to today’s youth!
