Juniors in Training

JTs is our leadership program for high-school students in Years 8 and 9 that runs over Term 2 and into Term 3. The program is designed for students who would like to develop their leadership skills, grow in their Christian faith, learn more about what it means to serve God while making great friends along the way.

In the program students will:

  • Attend our 4 JT nights, when we will have dinner and a time of training, 5pm-8:45pm.
  • Be a helper on the Camp Kedron July Primary Camp.
  • Have a mentor who will stay in touch with them through the course of the program.
