YouthMETRO Course Outline

Suggested Timeline

YouthMETRO traineeships begin on December 1st and finish the following November 30th. After attending the PYV Summer Camp over the summer holidays, it is expected that the time commitment each week for YouthMETRO will be approximately 4 hours. This should include a weekly ‘one-to-one’ meeting between the trainee and trainer that focus on the three strands of the traineeship (e.g. a 90 minute meeting will spend 30 minutes on each of the strands). This will will vary depending on:

  • how the trainee and trainer structure their catchups
  • the pace at which the study material is worked through
  • the particular ministry skills being developed
  • required attendance at additional training events

A suggested timeline for covering all the material in the traineeship is:
