This is a basic training course for adults, led by the Diocesan Youth Adviser. The course does not assume that you have any experience of working with young people at all. It is very informal and any questions are good questions!
It is designed for those who are new to working with youth in a church context, or for those who wish to improve their skills, techniques and understanding. It is also a wonderful opportunity to meet youth leaders from other churches and share ideas.
We run the course on an ad hoc basis - if you can get a group of volunteers together for between 2 and 4 evenings, we will come and run the course at your church - evenings, or daytime over one whole Saturday. Please get in touch to enquire about times and days that suit you!
The course covers:
- Why does the Church do Youth Ministry?
- Youth Culture
- Adolescent Development
- Leading a Small Group
- Leading a Session
- Staying Safe
- Resources for Youth Ministry
- Maintaining our own Spiritual Journey
