Youth Worker Focus Team
Formed in August of 2017 as a Youth Worker Focus Group, this group began meeting to assist with the development of trainings and programs for Diocese of Atlanta Youth Workers. For the next 2 years, this group would meet regularly to plan and facilitate events for Youth Workers, offering mentorship to incoming Youth Workers, and serve as a sounding board for the Office of Youth Ministries. In June of 2019 after 2 years of service, the Office of Youth Ministries moved this group into a permanent structure as the Youth Worker Focus Team.
The purpose of the Youth Worker Focus Team is to assist the Office of Youth Ministries in forming a community for Youth Workers.
The Youth Worker Worker Focus Team envisions living into the purpose by doing the following.
- Coordinating and facilitating trainings and community events for Youth Workers
- Serving as mentors to incoming Youth Workers
- Advocating for youth and youth worker participation on a diocesan level
- Discern and select youth and youth leaders for special events like Province IV Networking and Episcopal Youth Event
If you are looking for guidance in youth ministry and would like to schedule a time to meet with a member of the Focus Team, contact us here.
