Chrysalis Youth Ministry Training Program

The Chrysalis Program is a leadership and skill-development program for youth and adults who work with youth. It seeks to prepare, equip and grow outstanding leaders in youth ministry and in Unitarian Universalism. It turn, these leaders, both youth and adults, are building strong, multigenerational, multicultural communities in their congregations and creating, supporting and sustaining vibrant youth ministries.

The Chrysalis Program recognizes that youth and adults are partners in this work. It advocates youth involvement at all levels and at all stages in the visioning, planning, execution and follow-up. It recognizes adults as active partners and mentors, not just chaperones.

The Chrysalis Program offers a number of different trainings to address the many facets of youth ministry. Visit each link to learn more about those particular trainings.

If you are interested in planning or attending a training, contact your District Staff. They will be able to tell you what leadership opportunities are already scheduled and can provide you with information on how to host a training.
