Jeremiah 1:7 - Youth Training

Jeremiah 1:7
"But the LORD answered me;
Say not, "I am too young."
To whomever I send you, you
shall go; whatever I command you,
you shall speak."


Jeremiah 1:7 is an Archdiocesan safe environment program which provides formation for high school-age youth who assist adults in ministry to children and youth under the age of 18. The program is a collaborative effort between OACE, OEC, and Archdiocesan Safe Environment personnel. The Office of Adolescent Catechesis and Evangelization is responsible for the day-to-day operating management of the program.

Included in this site is a training schedule and site locations for high school age youth as well as for those qualified and approved adults wanting to be trained as program facilitators. All adult program facilitators must first be approved through the Archdiocesan approval process.

Parish Catechetical Leaders (PCLs) who minister to children and youth utilizing this program are asked to carefully read and follow the links for procedures, forms, and handouts.
