Nairobi, 11 August, 2021 / 8:30 pm (ACI Africa).
Youth leaders and animators across various Catholic Parishes in Kenya have completed a training on a manual designed to improve the experience of young people in their church meetings and activities.
The workshop that was held under theme, “Train the Trainer in Youth Ministry”, a flagship program of Don Bosco Youth Educational Services (DBYES, Nairobi), was aimed to equip youth leaders with skills they require to make the programs attractive.
DBYES Director of Programs and member of Salesians of Don Bosco (SDB), Fr. Sahaya Selvam, told ACI Africa that at the moment, youth programs in many Catholic Parishes do not impact those they have been fashioned for.
“Often, we are told to talk to the youth and to make them participate in Church activities more. But these talks do not always yield much impact,” Fr. Selvam said in the Wednesday, August 11 interview.
