Deep Impact youth conference in Aviemore
The Deep Impact National Training conference is scheduled for Aviemore again this year. The weekend event presents an opportunity for all those involved in youth work to learn or brush up on skills.
Deep Impact National Youth Training Conference
What's it all about?
Deep Impact is the National Training conference for all those who are in any way and at any level involved in youthwork.
It is for those who are volunteers, or paid employees; for those working for local authorities, local churches and agencies; for those with heaps of experience or just starting out.
Deep Impact provides both practical and Biblical input from skilled youth practitioners and theologians; to equip those who attend with the knowledge, tools, skills and connections, that will enable them to reach teenagers in Scotland with the love of Christ.
Who is running it?
The conference is being organised by Scottish Christian Youth Work Forum (SCYWF); who desire to continue the brilliant work of previous years; and build on Deep Impact's well deserved reputation for high quality and innovative training.
Where is it?
Deep Impact is hosted in the MacDonald Aviemore Highland Resort; that provides an excellent & informal conference venue.
Pioneered by Highlands and Islands Youth for Christ, Deep Impact has now become Scotland’s National Youthwork training conference.
When is it?
21st to 23rd January 2011
Deep Impact is a training conference for youthworkers over 18. However the organisers recognise that some youthworkers are mentoring apprentice leaders, following Biblical examples like Paul and Timothy.
The pre-conference publicity states: "If you are mentoring a 16 or 17 year old specifically to become a youthworker, then they may accompany you. Only one apprentice leader per adult mentor delegate. Apprentice leaders are the responsibility of their adult mentor with whom they share accommodation. There is space on your booking form to also book in your apprentice leader."
