The CYAK Team is made up of all those who have a heart for youth, and who work with us to share the love of Christ with the youth and young adults in their communities. We count on the CYAK Team to help spread the word about upcoming events and opportunities, to help get students registered for regional youth retreats and Bible Camp, to as well as participate our gatherings by leading worship, speaking, cooking, taking pictures, leading small groups and so much more. Many people on the CYAK Team lead small groups or Bible Studies, and it is one of CYAK's priorities to resources and equip them in their service. We are so thankful for the support that we receive from all of those on the CYAK Team!
Building and supporting the CYAK team is key for the development of youth ministry in Alaska. Because of this, CYAK works to recruit, train, resource, and synergize youth workers and volunteers across the state.
Recruit: We recruit local volunteers to work with the kids in the village, and youth workers from outside the village as well.
Train/Resource: Volunteers who are well equipped make a significant difference in the lives of kids. Providing training and resourcing is especially important because feeling unequipped is a major cause for burnout.
Network: To avoid feeling isolated and discouraged, we create a sense of connection for youth workers and volunteers by networking at Bible Camp, regional youth events, and times of training.
Synergize: Synergy is created by connecting youth workers and working together so that we can accomplish the ministry that we would not be able to do on our own.
Strategic Planning: CYAK helps youth workers and churches strategically plan for ways of effectively reaching youth.
