Canterbury Youth Services

Canterbury Youth Services is a Christian based, Strengths focused organisation that has been set up to train and resource leaders in youth work and youth ministry in and around the Canterbury region.

The way they do this is through training leaders involved in five categories of youth work…

  • Paid youth leaders and youth pastors
  • Unpaid youth leaders and youth workers
  • Volunteers that help those leading the above 2 groups
  • Emerging leaders
  • Paid youth workers in schools or organisations

Throughout the year they run two major events, Easter Camp and Amped, which are designed to grow local youth communities through a lot of fun, relational time together. Throughout the year they hold two focused leadership development events and have assembled a network of youth workers around Canterbury.
