Choosing to serve as a youth advisor is one of many ways that adults in our congregations can demonstrate their commitment to youth. Serving in this capacity, however is more than just making sure things run smoothly. Advisors contribute to faith- and spirit-centered, multigenerational, multicultural, congregationally rooted ministry to and with youth.
Youth Ministry Advising: A Complete Guide covers broad-ranging topics including ways to recruit and support youth advisors, the nuts and bolts of youth group management, the role of youth in advisors creating a safe space, leadership training, and programming and project ideas.
This resource is great, not just for lead youth advisors, but also for religious educators, ministers, and any adult who wants to work with youth in the congregation, whether in the youth group or elsewhere.
