YouthMETRO Application

A YouthMETRO traineeship is a one-year, part time, church based traineeship, focussed on preparing and growing youth leaders in local churches. Like METRO traineeships, YouthMETRO traineeships aim to equip trainees in being, thinking and serving like Jesus, with a specific focus on doing this with and to youth.

This happens as trainees complete intensive units in Evangelism and Christian Doctrine at at a Summer Intensive, attend the Engage Leaders conference, read Christian books, work through ministry papers, meet one-to-one with their trainer, and serve in ministry in their local church.

This traineeship is aimed at people 16 years to young adults.
