Youth leader/s

  • Lead the youth group
  • Heads-up Youth Pastoral Counsel
  • Represent youth on PPC and at Deanery meeting
  • Coordinate youth events at Parish such as Youth Mass
  • Organise annual youth camps, holiday programs, retreats and youth leadership training
  • Supported by Parish Priest (Spiritual Director) and adult mentors

Requirements:
Each Parish needs to select a young person who is already active and committed in the Parish to take on the role of youth leader, with the support and encouragement of the role of youth in the Parish. This person does not necessarily have to have other leadership responsibilities in the Parish e.g. Choir leader, but should have a genuine desire to assist in establishing a youth group in the Parish. If you have difficulty finding such a young person in your Parish please contact the implementation committee.
