Friend vs Youth Worker
A downloadable training for adult volunteers
One – Friend vs. Youth Worker is a necessity when working with students. Many adult volunteers don’t realize that their role in the ministry is to build a mentoring relationship with students. They often think that if students like them, they are doing ministry. Help your adults move from friendship to being effective youth workers.

Distinctive Element: This intentional 30-45 minute training session is designed to provide your volunteer staff with tangible skills that help them succeed in spiritually developing and leading students. LeaderTreks believes that the capacity of a youth ministry is measured by the amount of adult volunteers who have intentional relationships with students. For many reasons (lack of training, unclear expectations and even fear) adult volunteer staff may struggle to be more than a chaperone in youth ministry. These short trainings are designed to build confidence and skills into your volunteer staff, helping you accomplish the mission of your youth ministry.
