Youth Leader Tip For The Week

This bonus is just for you as the youth leader — a quick
tip and an illustration to enhance your youth leadership. You may already know this, or you may have learned it through trial and error, or maybe you just need a reminder of
something you already know. Here’s a way to get it with a quick infusion.

 

A BIT MORE

You don’t need to stalk your young people, but it makes sense to be on their social media feeds, whether that’s with Instagram, Snapchat, or whatever platform they are using. This provides a clue about what they are thinking or what they want to project about themselves at this time. This can give you plenty of prayer material, whether it’s praise or petition. Expect for a young person’s identity to go through many experimental phases, without knowing how long any one phase will last. See
if a person’s online identity matches who they are at Sabbath School or whether they are living a double life—that dreaded hypocrisy young people are so sensitive about in others.
