Youth Envoy, Olivia from California, shared some of her goals for 2013, here is an excerpt: 
“Short term I am trying to get as many people in my youth group as possible to attend the Spring Seminar which means planning fundraisers.......Long term, I am trying to make our congregation a Blue Ribbon Congregation and I am also talking with other youth in my group who want to take over as youth envoy when I go to college.....”

March Envoy Training

Tuesday, March 19th was an Envoy Training Call.  The January training call gave us a plethora of ideas for possible fundraisers and events and this time we focused our time on addressing barriers and sustaining strengths of Envoy work in our congregations.
 
Our next training in a few months will be experience specific (1 year or less, 1-4 years, 5+ years).
