Fundamentals of Healthy Youth Ministry Part 1 OH
Type of event: Training
We’re excited to offer a new iteration of the Fundamentals of Healthy Youth Ministry training in the Central East Region. We've divided the two day training into two separate sessions, each 6 hours long. This registration is for Part One.
These workshops are completely stand alone but attendees will benefit most from attending both. We ask that congregations send teams - at least three people, consisting of at least one youth and one adult. This training is for Youth in grades 8-12 and adult (25 or over) advisers, volunteer teachers, religious professionals - anyone who works with or plans to work with youth in congregations.
Topics covered in Part One
- Orientation, introductions, icebreakers, check in
- Covenants Part 1 - How to make them meaningful and useful
- Building community - the importance of belonging, steps for bonding, tricks for engagement
- Safety - code of ethics, confidentiality, crisis
- Shared leadership - healthy youth/adult partnership, accountability Read more on our Fundamentals of Healthy Youth Ministry page.
The ratio for this training is 7 youth per adult. There is a cap of 30 participants.
Cost: $30, includes lunch and snacks. If you cannot afford the fee for the training and need a full or partial waiver you may request that on the registration form. You will be notified if your request is denied.
