YOUNGSTOWN — The Diocese of Youngstown’s Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministry is offering online classes this winter for adults who work with middle school, high school and college-age youth.

Based on the National Standards for Lay Ecclesial Ministry Youth Ministry Specialization, this youth ministry online training program consists of eight modules that will provide tools for dynamic and meaningful ministries with young people.

The program is built sequentially, but students can start with any course. Students may take as many or as few modules as desired. 

Beginning Monday, “Cultivating a Culture of Encounter through Evangelization, Catechesis and Community Life” is geared toward reading, discussions, light research and practical applications. 

“Fundamentals of Evangelization and Catechesis with Adolescents” will run through Feb. 14, followed by “Forming a Consequential Faith in Adolescents” through March 22. 

Fees are $40 per module and include access to the online materials, course book and facilitation by trained facilitators. 

The registration form can be found here.
