Bute Mills, 74 Bute Street, Luton, LU1 2EY
Looking for a different way to support Youthscape this year?
We are writing you as our valued supporters to share an exciting opportunity coming up in September 2018. Every year Youthscape are privileged to have a few select students join our local team during the course of the academic year. These students will be volunteering their time to serve in our drop in, schools, churches, as well as mentoring schemes, detached projects, and our national work. They will be provided with pastoral support, personal/career development opportunities, formal training, and plenty of on the ground youth work experiences during their time in this missional year. Like us, they are passionate about their faith and young people, but as students they will need help with arranging their move to Luton.
“This year has completely enhanced my understanding of youth work. I have experienced new ways of helping young people reach their potential, had opportunities at Youthscape I would not get anywhere else, and have been invested in from start to finish. Being hosted has meant that I was able to be part of the Luton community immediately and enabled me to hit the ground running.” David Walford, Placement Student 2017-2018
We would be most appreciative if you would consider supporting us in the following ways:
- Prayer: Please be praying for the students that will be joining the team. Pray that God will bring the right people, that they settle in comfortably at Youthscape and in the local community, that they build great relationships with our young people, and that this year is a brilliant experience for them.
- Share: Speak to your church/organisation about putting this notice in your newsletter or notices: Youthscape are excited at the opportunity to invite three new students who will be joining their team from September 2018 – August 2019. They are currently praying and looking for a few generous families who might be willing to offer a room for the academic year. If you might be able to help or would like more details, please get in touch with Robert McNerney at email@example.com
- Spare a room: Could you provide a spare room for one of these students?
“I’ve loved having a student living with me. I’ve been inspired by her decision to give a year up to volunteer and serve the young people of Luton, and found this was a simple and practical way to invest in local youth work myself. I want Luton to be a place where all young people flourish and develop, and hosting makes that possible for students themselves, and for the young people they serve.” Dr. Lucie Shuker, Host 2017-2018
