There are two ways to apply to become a PYV leader:

1. Contact us at PYV

2. Youth Metro

YouthMETRO is a one year traineeship in local church youth ministry beginning at PYV's Summer Camp.

In keeping with the 2 Timothy 2:2 model, the program is designed so the trainee is simultaneously a trainee and a trainer.  This 'trainee and trainer' shape is reflected through the trainee meeting not only one-to-one with their trainer, but also with key others they are training, passing on their training.

There are three strands to the YouthMETRO traineeship:

Being like Jesus

YouthMETRO emphasises daily bible reading and prayer as the key to godliness, and discussion/accountability in the training relationship in relation to this. There is also specific attention given to personal evangelism and family life.

Thinking like Jesus

YouthMETRO sets essential reading that both prepares the trainee for future training and stimulates the trainer/trainee?s thinking in relation to life and ministry.

Serving like Jesus

YouthMETRO is designed to develop thinking and skills in certain core areas of ministry. The main training resources used are the Ministry Papers, alongside other key reading.

Applications for YouthMETRO open in July and close in mid October each year.  More information on YouthMETRO can be found at metrotraineeship.org.au. To know more of what you're signing on for as a PYV Leader, click here to read the PYV Leader's Declaration of Committement.
