By accompanying young people, youth ministry is an important avenue for faith formation. The Catholic school provides a relational space where many forms of youth ministry, including that of the teacher, can take place. Youth ministry honours student voice and offers unique witness to faith.
|Catholic Schools Youth Ministry International (CSYMI) |
This model of faith formation consists of a retreat experience, a Religious Education curriculum component, senior youth ministry teams and connecting students into the broader Church community through the CSYMI and ACU Youth Academy. It is a phased model.
|Peer to Peer Ministry |
This may be as simple as a strong mentoring program or as invitational as working with The National Evangelisation Team (NET). Peer to peer ministry is often experienced through retreat and reflections days.
|Young Christian Students |
Young Christian Students is a peer leadership approach utilising the see, judge, act method of taking action in student’s lives.
