We hear Jesus’ simple call to ‘follow’ and seek to equip young people to understand and contextualize this call for themselves. We hold this calling alongside the distinctive of The Salvation Army. Central to our faith formation is a focus on holiness and action: heart to God, hand to man. In all we do, we will point young people towards holiness, and send them out to be transformative agents, as disciples of Jesus in the tradition of social change and justice.

In addition excellent organizational and project management skills, strong verbal and written communication skills, the ability to multi-task, creativity, innovation, initiative and attention to detail are required.
