16-18 Year Old
Taskforce Programme

Taskforce

Taskforce is a training and mentoring programme aimed to encourage, equip and enable young people ages 17-18, in School Years 12 & 13 (or equivalent) for Christian service and leadership. Those who are aged 19 have the option to spend another year in Taskforce or to take on new responsibilities as a YCYH leader. Taskforce plays a key part within YCYH, as they support our various leadership teams in the Whithaugh holidays, RUup4it events, as well as receiving a separate teaching program.

We are looking for young people who:

• DESIRE to know God more and make Him known, and who wish to:-
• DEEPEN their relationship with Jesus
• DISCOVER their gifts and ways to serve God
• DEVELOP a positive Christian role with leadership responsibilities
• DISCIPLE others to know God

Have the capacity to work as part of a team under leadership and supervision

The roles and responsibilities are normally defined as below, although certain exceptions are made for young people who are too old, but yet are not quite ready for full leadership responsibilities. This is just a general overview, and will depend on gifts and experience.

Junior Taskforce – (School Year 12)
• Serving and supporting leaders
• Training – Discussion group, praying, discipleship

Senior Taskforce – (School Year 13)
• Serving & supporting leaders
• Being mentored by senior leaders for leadership roles
• Responsibilities (e.g. PA/technical, worship, admin, drama, leading services etc)
• Training – Bible study groups, child protection

We would love to hear from any young person who has a strong faith in Jesus, and wishes to share their faith with other young people. Before they can become part of our holidays and events, everyone is required to complete a Taskforce Application Form. Also because the work in Taskforce involves unsupervised contact with children and young people, all those applying, must undergo a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check, before they can be involved.

If you would like further information on Taskforce, please don’t hesitate to contact the YCYH Office.

“It was my second time on Taskforce this year. I wasn’t going to miss it for the world! We were all given such an amazing opportunity to serve God and to help the campers develop their faith, even if that only meant cleaning the lodge loos so the campers had more time for activities! The way all of the Taskforcers bond each year is really special and I can honestly say that they are my closest friends. We have come on this faith journey together supporting one and other as we go to become the best we can be. My week on Taskforce was one of the most amazing weeks of my life” – Sarah – Taskforcer 2015/16
