Top 10 Ways to Incorporate Adults at Your Event

Adults are important for any youth servant event. They set the tone and can help create a healthy, successful, and faithful event.

10. Chaperones – It’s pretty obvious, yet important. Our youth need adult supervision.

9. Communication – Begin communication before the event begins.

8. Small Group Leaders – Help facilitate Bible study discussions and devotions.

7. Worksite Leaders – Help oversee and coordinate projects at worksites.

6. Planning Meetings – Be resources for each other (see It’s Your Serve, pages 84-88).

5. Support Staff – Recruit adults from your church or organization to help in key areas (i.e. recreation, music, food, etc.).

4. Assistants – Use youth counselors as assistants to support staff as they are gifted.

3. Delegate Responsibilities – Delegate so you have sufficient time to do your job.

2. Special Talents – Use the gifts and talents of your adult volunteers to enhance the event.

1. Role Models – Hard working adults live out their Christian life in real ways.
