The Salvation Army Youth Department exists to equip, support and resource any form of Youth Work based at Corps and Centres throughout New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga.

The vision of The Salvation Army Youth Department is to inspire and equip youth to follow God, connect well with others, find personal significance and make a positive difference in their world.

This vision will be achieved in the following ways:

1. Make, Grow and Retain Youth Disciples
2. Recruit, Develop and Retain Youth Leaders
3. Offer Consistent and Well-Resourced Services
4. Work Together

Check out the full National Youth Ministry Strategy and what we are doing to put this into practice under the Leaders tab above. 

There are a diverse range of youth work expressions operating throughout the three countries in our territory.  These are led by both employed and volunteer youth workers and leaders who are trained or in training, seeking to empower young people and lead them into a better understanding of Jesus Christ and His purpose for their lives.
