Additional Notes:



The use of social media is essential with this age group. A required weekly check in with

either the pastor or CEC representative (TBA) would ensure that any needs of the youth

and program are being addressed in a timely manner. The additional 10 hours per quarter

would allow for special youth programs which the Youth Leader would be responsible

for coordinating. The valid driver’s license takes into account that some activities happen

off the church grounds and the youth leader needs to help with transportation.
