Identifying & Developing Emerging Young Leaders
In 2007 a number of state youth denominational Coordinators met with Scripture Union SA to discuss the possibility of starting a focused camp for emerging young leaders accessible to every denomination and Christian school. In 2008 the first YLW kicked off. Youth Leadership Week is now in its 7th year and has expanded its focus to include training for post-high school leadership.
Youth Leadership Week combines action oriented team based activities with input from the bible, small groups, reflection, coaching & stories from current leaders.
We aim to inspire young people to participate in what GOD is doing through Jesus, in rescuing & transforming HIS world. The church & school neighbourhood are two meaningful places where this can happen. Young people can do amazing things. YLW will help them identify mission opportunities, and how to pursue these in partnership with local churches & CPS Workers.
Youth Leadership Week sets up emerging leaders with 12 months of mentoring after camp. Mentoring is critical for the cycle of action and reflection as it helps young people to keep growing through success or failure.
Who Should Attend?
Year 9 – 12 students who are ready & willing to be challenged & stretched, both personally, & in their leadership.
Youth Leadership Week is run by Wired Youth Ministries, SUSA’s youth ministry department.
