Are you a volunteer youth leader in the local church? Would you like to develop your skills, grow in confidence and be more effective in working with young people?
This course will bring light and colour to your understanding and help you grow in your ministry.
This course trains those already doing youth work and could also provide a strong basis for a higher level qualification.
Did you know that the Church is the largest voluntary sector youth work provider in the UK? The aim of Aurora Youth is to resource this body of volunteer youth workers. This course is designed for those already doing youth work in their local church, who love the young people they work with, but have had no formal youth work training.
There are no academic pre-requisites although each student will be expected to have the full support of their local church, and a member of their church should act as their supervisor.
