Quick Overview:

Being a volunteer youth worker can be exciting, intimidating, fulfilling, and challenging, and until now, there was no “manual” on how to be a volunteer in a youth ministry. How to Volunteer Like a Pro offers practical help and indispensable insights that will make your experience as a volunteer youth worker valuable and rewarding for you and your students.
 
Thank you for making the decision to be a volunteer youth worker---you give the gospel a flesh and blood presence and show God’s compassion for students in a way no one else does. Being a youth worker can be exciting, intimidating, fulfilling and challenging, and until now there was no “manual” on how to be a volunteer in a youth ministry. After more than twenty years as a paid youth worker, Jim Hancock left and became a volunteer in a student ministry. That experience taught him things he may never have learned as a youth ministry professional, and now he wants to empower others who are passionate about being volunteer youth workers. Inside this book you’ll find practical help, like: * tips about what to do on the first day * ideas on how to build and develop relationships with students * ways to combat youth “culture shock” * how to prepare students for life after youth group * how to say goodbye when it is time to leave …and many more indispensable insights that will make your experience as a volunteer youth worker valuable and rewarding for you and your students.
