The Young Lasallians team engages in diverse programs that are conducted under the Lasallian tradition. Each are designed for a specific group, context and purpose. Our range of programs include;
Our Lasallian Youth Ministry team are available to facilitate retreats from 1-3 days either at your school or off-site. The themes of the day can be tailored to fit your students year level, desired theme and context. Each day provides a unique experience for all participants to contemplate their lives through the Lasallian Catholic tradition.
Camp La Salle
Is an annual event for Year 7 & Year 8 students who may have had a challenging year or perhaps should be rewarded for improvement and/or commitment to their school. The camp is designed for students who would benefit from interaction with other young people from Sydney's Lasallian schools and would enjoy working in teams and sharing their gifts and talents. It is currently held in Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and New Zealand.
Our team has successfully delivered an annual 5 day leadership program for School Captains, Lasallian Student Leaders Seminar, Lasallian Encounter Day and stand-alone leadership training days. Currently we employ a Lasallian Youth Leader program in schools, whereby senior students are trained and engaged in peer to peer ministry with the junior grades throughout the school.
