Focus Youth (age 11-18) is where it’s at! We’ll be meeting each morning and evening in our own Youth Big Top and then hosting some top quality seminars and, of course, plenty of fun will be had. Our 2019 theme is ‘Living the dream: Inspiration from the life of Joseph’.
Focus Youth Village
This year, we have re-styled with our all-new Focus Youth Village, which will feature our very own Youth Big Top! Plus, we’re relocating the Village to give us more space than ever before for a load of experiences around the usual morning and evening gatherings. Look out for epic community games, sports competitions, gigs, a silent disco, neon parties, seminars and a ‘white T day’ – more details to follow!
Youth Big Top Speaker:
A respected role model for her generation, Sadie Robertson shares powerful messages of hope through her books, speaking events, podcasts, television and media appearances, social networks and her Live Original tour. Her commitment to balancing celebrity with philanthropy has led her into advocacy partnerships with World Vision and the World Food Program, inspiring millennials to impact the lives of others in positive ways.
Youth Cafe and Our Hut
For the first time, we’ll have our own dedicated Youth Café where you can come and grab a coffee before sessions start.
We want to make Focus Youth as welcoming as possible and that includes our young people with additional needs. The Our Hut team will be available to ensure that young people with additional needs are supported to join in with as much or as little of the Focus Youth programme as they would like to.
Focus youth- Need to know
As an 11–18 year old coming to be part of Focus Youth 2019, here’s everything you (and your parents!) need to know in a handy bite-sized format:
On the Friday at 4.00pm we’ll be hosting a ‘Getting the most out of Focus’ welcome session for young people and their parents in the Focus Youth Big Top (Youth Village).
The Focus Youth programme kicks off with an evening celebration at 7.30pm on the Friday night in the all new Focus Youth Big Top, where the young people will find out which small group they’ll be part of for the week.
Make sure you add to the kit list clothes you don’t mind getting messy and wet, and some spare sunnies to complete your summer look (and protect your eyes) during our epic powder paint battle…!
