Youth Work Journeys Services

  • Grow Your Own Youth Worker

    Your own young people are important resources and the ‘Grow Your Own’ programme will help churches or Christian youth projects develop them into leadership. As young people develop leadership they will explore the way of Jesus, develop self-confidence and grow their youth work skills.

  • Training

    If you want to change a young person’s life, change a youth worker’s life. Youth Work Journeys will do this by improving your basic attitudes, skills and knowledge of Christian youth-work and youth ministry and apply them to your youth-work practice.

  • Mentoring

    Youth Work Journeys mentoring enables you as a youth worker to reflect on and integrate your work and Christian character. It is particularly helpful if you are exploring how to grow and develop, facing challenging opportunities or going through difficult times in your life or work. 

Youth Work Training & Mentoring Programme Scotland

Paul was a great mentor to me during my youth work career. He saw qualities and skills I couldn’t always see in myself, he gave me opportunities to succeed and supported me when things didn’t work out as planned to help me grow in to a confident, reflective youth worker.
