Welcome to Youth Connect!
We want to know you, want to be known by you, and want to grow together as youth, as leaders, and as followers of Christ. Everything we do is to support your growing in Christ (up), your connectivity with each other (in), and your community impact (out) so we have collated some links and resources to help just that.
How You Can Get Involved
Reach In is about Discipleship. This is our relationship with others within the faith community. Here we support and uplift each other in all areas of life.
WA SDA Youth Connect – Facebook
This is a space for the young people of WA to come together and support each other. Here you can post prayer requests, share worship music, offer up praise and thanksgiving, and generally just love and encourage each other. Click the button to go straight to this Facebook Group. See you there!
Every Tuesday we have a special guest take over our Instagram story between 5 – 10 pm. It’s always a lot of fun and a great way to get to know some of your fellow Adventist youth. Follow us on Instagram now.
Reach Out is all about Mission. This is your personal, and our corporate, impact on our communities. Here we can work together to make the world a better place.
There are a lot of people in your area that are doing it really tough right now and ADRA is doing their part to help. If you want to know more about how you can help, contact Suzanne at the conference office, your local church pastor, or jump on their website www.adra.org.au/volunteer/
Some areas where you can help over the coming months are:
- Get your church/group involved: There are opportunities to assist current ADRA projects through donations of non-perishable food and toiletries; assist as volunteers in ADRA community pantries or emergency relief programs putting together food parcels and care packages; and doing food delivery to the elderly and disabled.
- Food Parcel Delivery: Deliver to the most disadvantaged in the community. Volunteers will pick up frozen meals from Gormania and/or food hampers from their local Coles/Woolworths or IGA and deliver to isolated disadvantaged singles/families in a safe manner.
- Phone Welfare Checks: The Department of Communities has made a checklist of questions to ask and if any assistance is needed this will flow back to ADRA or the Department of Communities to assist via a referral form.
- Hotel Accommodation Placement via phone: For those who have previously been trained in the ADRA Emergency Management (Disaster Recovery) Accommodation role we are calling on your assistance at this time. If you would like training in this area, please contact Suzanne at the office.
- Psychosocial Support: ADRA needs qualified counsellors and psychologists to volunteer for this over the phone service.
Register as a Volunteer. Fill in your details. Select ‘Other’ and the box will light up and type in what activity you would like to do. Please make sure you add WA, for instance, WA food deliveries, WA welfare checks, etc.
