Young Lions Juniors
Young Lions Juniors is a two-year leadership development course for kids transitioning between Year 6 and 7, including an annual Residential Training Weekend! We want to partner with AoG GB Churches to help identify, disciple and develop the next generations of leaders! All applications must be made by the partner Church rather than the individual young person, as the programme is only for those who are recommended to it by their home Church.
We will provide partner Churches with support to deliver monthly sessions with their Young Lions Juniors group, including badges earned for completing certain serving and faith based goals, online and team support, Young Lions Juniors Tee-shirts and access to the annual leadership camps!
There is an annual subscription cost for partner Churches and the individual Young Lions Juniors, as well as the cost for the Annual Residential Training Weekend.
Academic Year 2023/24 Residential Training Weekend Options:
