A brief overview of the training designs follow: Overview of Youth Ministry This workshop helps parish leaders come to fuller understanding of comprehensive youth ministry as outlined in Renewing the Vision: A Framework for Catholic Youth Ministry (USCCB, 1997). The workshop explores the ways that a parish can effectively minister to young people within the context of the parish, including the family and wider community. This workshop is for parish staff, parish leaders, and interested youth ministry volunteers, including young people. This will work best with parishes that currently have no youth ministry, or who have a limited approach. Organizing a Team for Youth Ministry This workshop helps parish leaders create a leadership structure for youth ministry that includes youth and adults. The workshop explores the need for a variety of leaders and the reasons why different roles are necessary and helpful in sustaining youth ministry over many years.

11 This workshop is for parish staff, parish leaders, and interested youth ministry volunteers, including young people. Developing Volunteer Leaders for Youth Ministry This workshop will assist parish leaders in recruiting, training, and supporting adults and youth for volunteer leadership in youth ministry. Included in this workshop are the tools necessary to create the roles descriptions that will assist these volunteers in knowing what they are being asked to do and will help parish leaders in recruiting volunteers based on interests and gifts. This workshop is for parish staff, parish leaders, and interested youth ministry volunteers, including young people. It can be used in helping to create a youth ministry team in a parish with no current youth ministry, or for creating a team to support an on-going youth ministry. Planning for Dynamic Youth Ministry This workshop helps parishes assess their current strengths and weaknesses, identify resources for youth ministry, and develop a practical plan for developing more effective ministry with adolescents. This workshop is designed for youth ministry leaders, including young people. This workshop is targeted at a group that wishes to plan for a season of ministry. Note: This workshop can be done in 2 hours, but it is also helpful to do it in a longer period of time thereby allowing for a practical plan at the end of the session. Becoming a Youth Friendly Parish This workshop helps parish leaders imagine together the parish s ability to minister to young people throughout all of parish life. Participants will discuss ways to include youth throughout parish life and discover ways that they can collaborate more fully to make young people feel welcomed in all ministries. Parish leaders will discover new ways that they can have a positive effect on youth and on the parish s youth ministry. This workshop is for parish staff, parish leaders, parish councils, and youth ministry leaders. It will work best with a variety of parish leaders in attendance. This workshop is not designed to do only with youth ministry leaders.

12 Hiring and Supporting a Coordinator of Youth Ministry This workshop assists a parish in preparing to hire a Coordinator of Youth Ministry (CYM). The session includes creating a job description and budget for the CYM, a guide through the search process, and a plan for orientation, support, and supervision. This workshop is for a hiring committee from a parish, empowered with hiring a coordinator of youth ministry. This can include parish staff, pastors, youth ministry volunteers, parish council members, youth, parents, etc. Understanding Youth Today This workshop helps parish leaders understand the developmental changes that young people are experiencing during early and older adolescence and how these changes affect the type of ministry that we offer. Participants will also explore how faith changes during these adolescent years and ways that ministry can address and support these changes. This workshop is youth ministry volunteers, and other adults who are interested in knowing about adolescent development. This might include parents and catechists, as well as parish staff and leaders. Ministering to Middle School Adolescents This workshop helps parishes know and understand how to minister with young adolescents. The workshop includes information about the developmental and faith needs of young adolescents and models for Middle School Youth Ministry that are effective. This workshop is for parish staff, parish leaders, and youth ministry leaders, including young people. This workshop should include those who are currently involved in catechetical efforts with young adolescence. Many Faces in God s House This workshop helps parish leaders come to a fuller understanding how Catholic Youth Ministry can minister effectively with all of the cultural groups represented within their parish community. Participants will explore the importance of creating room for all the cultural differences while maintaining unity within diversity in youth ministry and learn how to engage all young people in appreciating the richness of other cultures. This workshop is for parish staff and youth ministry leaders, including young people. It is essential that leaders from all cultural groups of the parish participate within the workshop.
