CHILDREN & YOUTH
Youth & Children's Ministries provides support, training and resources to children and youth. Working alongside young people is central to the mission of The Salvation Army. We believe young people have unbridled potential; potential to dream, to lead and to restore the forgotten places and rebuild communities.
The Territorial Children and Youth Department will provide an annual opportunity for young adults from across the territory to join a Learning Pathways cohort. All new divisional or corps youth employees will be encouraged to join a Learning Pathways cohort. Learning Pathways will be a significant resource for Summer Camping Ministries’ staff.
Learners will complete all 12 sessions of both Community Engagement and Personal Development, including filling in the supplied workbook and keeping track of personal reflections and practical applications using a personal note-taking system of your own choosing.
