10 Ways That Everyone Can Support Youth

  1. Great and be pleasant to young people everywhere you meet them

  2. Consistently pray for your and youth ministry efforts, and let them know you are praying for them.

  3. Seek and find opportunities to affirm youth, and let them know they are valued and cared about.  Thanks youth for being present and participating in parish life.  Acknowledge and affirm their efforts both within the parish and beyond.

  4. Take time to get to know the youth and families who live near you and who you encounter on a regular basis.  Ask them to tell and / or teach you about the things that interest them (e.g. sports, music, hobbies, computers and the Internet.

  5. Get involved as a volunteer in programs for your at church or in the community as you schedule permits, perhaps working on a limited or seasonal basis.

  6. Become and "ambassador" for youth by encouraging the adults you encounter to view youth in positive ways.  Actively help other adults to understand the needs and gifts of youth.  Help them respond to the challenges youth face today.

  7. When you see youth doing good work let them know it, and let their supervisors and parents know as well.

  8. Support families with youth by offering to help with transportation, childcare for younger children, homework, overnight supervision, or as an emergency contact.

  9. Make contacts to create opportunities for youth in the businesses and organizations to which you belong (youth part-time summer employment, service projects, learning opportunities, mentor programs, etc.)

  10. Support the leaders who are working in ministry with youth.  Help with support roles, such as helping to keep track of mailing lists, budgets, or transportation co-ordination.  Provide childcare or other assistance that helps the leaders to provide programs for youth.
