PYV (Presbyterian Youth Victoria) hold numerous camps for youth each year. Leading on these camps is optional for a YouthMETRO trainee, and if they have not previously led on a PYV camp they would need to undertake PYV’s leadership application process. To avoid a YouthMETRO trainee completing PYV’s similar application form, with the trainee’s permission, METRO will pass on your YouthMETRO application to PYV where it will be considered by their Leadership Accreditation Committee.

I give METRO permission to pass on my YouthMETRO application to PYV for the purpose of applying to be a PYV leader.


The information contained in this application is correct to the best of my knowledge.
I agree to attend the PYV Summer Camp intensive, Engage leadership conference, MTS challenge and METRO graduation and orientation lunch as a part of my traineeship.
I authorise any churches listed in this application to give you any information they may have regarding my character and fitness for YouthMETRO.
I release all such references from liability for any damage that may result from furnishing such evaluations to you, and I waive any right that I may have to inspect references provided on my behalf.
Should my application be accepted, I agree to be bound by the PCV’s “Safe Church” Policy & Code of conduct, my signed contract, and the policies and decisions of the METRO Committee, and to refrain from unscriptural conduct in the performance of my services on behalf of YouthMETRO.

By checking this box I agree to the Applicant's Statement (required)
