Youth directors need help. They have to negotiate the trials of teenagers and the fears of parents, often with very limited ministry experience. Plus, it's easy for their work to become segregated from the rest of the church's ministry.

Whether your youth director or leader is brand new or a long-time veteran, this 23-page training tool can help. Let the insights that we've pulled together here provide encouragement and direction for his or her ministry. NOTE: You have permission to make up to 1,000 copies of this resource to be distributed in a church or educational setting.
