This is a bonus just for the youth leader—a quick tip and an illustration to enhance your youth leadership. You may already know this idea, have learned it through trial and error, or just need a quick reminder.




Don’t just dump things on them. Ask them to assist you. Then help them transition into being co-leaders. Keep developing them to the point of stretching them to lead with you being their assistant. The final step is for them to lead and you to follow. That’s right, you don’t just disappear; you follow their lead, which makes them a leader and makes you a good role model for others. Keep in mind that as the youth graduate onto the next Sabbath School that you’ll need to start over and give younger youth opportunities to lead. As a youth leader, you are a leader-maker!
