‘Help! I’m a volunteer in our Church Youth Work’ is a free monthly training opportunity for everyone who volunteers for their Church Youth Work. Held over 10 sessions and organised by Youthscape, each evening is suitable for those starting out in Youth Work as well as established volunteers (but you don’t need to attend all of the sessions!). Come and have an inspiring evening, meet volunteers from other churches and get encouraged and equipped.
This session will cover:
Insight: Identity and Self Worth – Developing identity as a teenager; negative influences; how Youth Workers can affirm value
Skills: Presenting and Communicating – How to prepare and give a talk or presentation to young people
You: Self-care – How do I respond when working with young people negatively impacts me or my family?
