- Generate meaningful involvement and responsibilities for youth and encourage participation of youth in real-life decisions.
- Channel peer pressure and normal energies and risk-taking tendencies toward constructive ends.
- Provide youth with skills through training in a peer-group context.
- Increase self-esteem and feelings of belonging in their community and assuming responsibility for self and others.
- Provide an atmosphere for youth to be on the receiving end of effective youth ministry.
- Provide settings for youth to be on the giving end of effective ministry through hands-on service and being positive role models of Christian living themselves.
Aims and Objectives

- To provide training and recognition generated by the felt need of young people to be better equipped to pursue their ambitions.
