This is part of the induction process for all new staff members of Young Life Australia.

Welcome to the Young Life Australia Staff.  Below is an introductory video and letter from our CEO, Glyn Henman.  Please watch the video, and then complete the course material below.

Should you decide to leave and comeback, you will notice a green check-mark next to the lessons and topics that have been completed. This will make it easy for you to start exactly where you left off.  You can also click on “Resume My Last Course” on the homepage to recommence where you left off.

The pages that have videos on them will require you to watch the entire video before it will allow you to continue in the course.  A quiz will become available once you have completed the course; this is simply an acknowledgment that you have completed all the training.

Please do not hesitate to contact your direct supervisor, or the National Office, if you have any questions about the material that you cover in this course.


Welcome to the ministry of Young Life Australia and the world of young people.

It is exciting that you feel the call of God upon your life to work with the teenagers of your community.  It is committed people like you that make Young Life Australia what it is today, as we are all a part of God’s bigger plan to reach young people in Australia.

Young Life Australia is a non-profit Christian organisation committed to connecting with young people in their world, providing strong and positive influences in their lives. YLA seeks to reach out to young people and foster a sense of purpose and value in their lives through meaningful relationships with adult role models.

Young Life Australia is primarily a volunteer organisation and part of your role on the staff to is to recruit and assist volunteers in the delivery of the services that we provide.

We would also ask that you not only include the young people that you are working with in your prayer life, but that you would also include the staff, board, committees, donors and other volunteers into your prayer life as well.  Prayer is what makes our mission shine.  We need to pray to the Lord of the harvest to continue to send out workers into the harvest field (Matthew 9:38), and you are the co-labourers with us in the task that God has laid before us.

We thank you for your commitment to do mission among young Australians with us and we all look forward to spending some time together soon.

God Bless You,

Glyn Henman

Dear Prospective Volunteer Leader,

Welcome to the ministry of Young Life Australia and the work of young people here in Australia.

It is exciting that you feel the call of God upon your life to work with the young people of your local community.  It is committed people like you that make Young Life Australia what it is today, as we are all a part of God’s bigger plan to reach young people in Australia.  The thing I love about Young Life Australia so much is that it’s a volunteer organisation, and you are continuing that great gift in committing your time to become a Young Life Australia volunteer.

As you can see from the material that we have produced, we are serious about what God has called us to do.  In it, you will find some policy documents that pertain to how we are to conduct ourselves in our mission to young people and how we are to relate together as a community.  It is vital that you read carefully all the information following and fill out the necessary documentation before you begin any ministry with Young Life Australia.  Failure to do so will exclude you from participating in the mission of Young Life Australia until you have completed and handed in the documentation.  This documentation is for your protection as a Young Life Australia representative working in a very volatile environment.

We also ask that you consider joining as a member of Young Life Australia.  There is further information at the end of this package, and the process of how to become a member is outlined, which includes nomination by a current Young Life Australia member.

We would also ask that you not only include the young people that you are working with in your prayer life, but that you would also include all the staff, board, committees, donors and other volunteers into your prayer life as well.  Prayer is what makes the mission happen.  We need to pray to the Lord of the harvest to continue to send out workers into the harvest field (Matthew 9:38), and you are the co-labourers with us in the task that God has laid before us.

We thank you for your commitment to do mission among young Australians with us and we all look forward to spending some time together soon.

God Bless You
