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 former 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,
Young Life Australia
