Webinars for Youth Advisors
Below is a listing of upcoming and archived webinars of interest to youth advisors wanting training, refreshers, and ways to expand their knowledge base and skill set. Webinars are great ways to learn from home or with other advisors in your congregation. This listing will be updated as new webinars are announced and old webinars are archived. Please note that not all live webinars are archived, so don’t miss your opportunity to attend.
These webinars will be offered live and may require registration. Some regions limit attendance to advisors in those geographic areas while others will open them to all if space is available. Please check with the individual hosts.
