And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others. — 2 Timothy 2:2
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 PYV Summer Camp, attend the Engage Bible teaching conference, read Christian books, work through ministry papers, meet one-to-one with their trainer, and serve in ministry in their local church. There is no minimum age requirement for a YouthMETRO trainee, but it is recommended that a trainee be at least entering into Year 10 or 11.

About YouthMETRO Funding
The METRO Committee has undertaken to assist churches in their investment in training their young people for Gospel ministry through YouthMETRO.
METRO asks that churches contribute a nominal amount of $250 towards the training of each YouthMETRO trainee serving in their church.
Funds will be used to provide training materials, books and trainees’ attendance at PYV’s Summer Camp, Engage Youth Leader’s Conference and MTS Challenge.
METRO requires an extract from a Session meeting confirming the funding and approval of a YouthMETRO trainee and appointment of their trainer before a trainee can commence the traineeship.
