From now to July 2017, the UUA is running a webinar series to train adults working with youth. The “Competencies for Ministry to and with Youth” is the UUA’s new approach to youth advisor training, focusing on training adults who are part of youth ministry in congregations (that includes advisors, religious educators, ministers and other adults).
Each webinar features one of the competencies, and is given twice in the month. Canadians are welcome to participate! The webinars will be lead by UUA and regional staff who are excellent resources for those working in youth ministry in any capacity. I would highly recommend participating in these webinars, and passing this information on to any new youth advisors coming on board this fall. The webinars will be recorded for later viewing.
Upcoming Webinars include:
- Healthy youth/adult relationships – Oct 11 at 1:00 pm EST or October 12 at 8:00 pm EST
- Safety in youth ministry – November 9 at 1:00 pm EST or Nov 10 at 8:00 pm EST
- Pastoral care to/with youth – December 8 at 8:00 pm EST or December 13 at 1:00 pm EST
