Get Involved!

TeenStreet is not just for Teens! There are heaps of ways you can find a place at TS19.

Recent school leavers can get a taste of leadership by being a Gapper, we need plenty of awesome young adults to coach Teens, and of course there's stacks of behind-the-scenes roles that are essential for the smooth running of TS19!

Teen

We love investing in teens and seeing them begin to fulfil the potential God has placed in them. TeenStreet is for high school aged teens who love Jesus and are ready to be challenged to grow in their relationship with God. It is a life changing experience!

We understand that Youth Groups have teens from a range of backgrounds. Some are committed Christians, others are on the journey to faith. If teens are not Christians but desiring to learn and grow and engage in the program, they will have a great week. If you are unsure whether Teenstreet is for you, your teen or teens in your youth group, feel free to contact us.

Gapper

Gapper

The GAP Year team usually consists of around 30-40 recent school leavers with a heart to serve, a desire to learn more about leadership and an attitude to have fun.

GAPPERS will receive dedicated training during the camp focussed on leadership development and then the opportunity to use this training leading the daily GAP game times with teenagers and various other service opportunities. GAPPERs help make TeenStreet function smoothly – from making sure everyone has a seat to sit on during meeting times to helping run the café and assisting wherever there is a need.

Coach

Coach

Coaching at TeenStreet is loving, supporting, teaching and encouraging a Net group of six teens. We ask coaches to be pointing teens toward Jesus and challenging them through their words and example. We are also committed to developing coaches through our training days and mentoring that takes place during TeenStreet.

This is a key pastoral care role and a core aspect of every teenager’s experience while they are at TeenStreet, as relationships are fostered and a supportive group dynamic is formed. Each Net has two coaches and six teens. A Ministry and Management (M&M) couple will oversee a group of coaches, providing support and guidance when needed.

M&M

M&M

The M&M role is to serve, support and invest in the Coaches. Coaching can be an intense experience and M&Ms can play a valuable role in providing a listening ear and encouragement. M&M couples are made up of a male and a female (usually a married couple), who can work together with the team of Coaches under their care.  They are generally mature adults who are a good judge of character and situations, and capable in the area of pastoral care.

They will meet daily with Coaches and will also be available to supervise or counsel teenagers who are under their Coaches’ care. The role of M&M requires a good degree of initiative as often the role can be fairly undefined outside of set meeting times with Coaches.

Service Team

Service Team

The Service Team consists of amazing people who work together to help make TeenStreet possible.  This includes the organisers who coordinate the logistics of TeenStreet, the presenters who put together the programme, and the people whose job it is to ensure that everyone remains well fed, comfortable and safe throughout the week.

A Service Team Leader is responsible for a particular area of service during the camp – this could be in the Boundaries Team (security), the Worship team, the technical Production crew, or overseeing the running of BeanStreet – our amazing cafe.

Prayer & Support Team

Prayer & Support

Most mentoring and teaching during camp will take place with the Coach or possibly an M&M involved. However, for a number of issues there will be a need to bring in an experienced and trained counsellor.

A team of three to four professionally qualified counsellors are available to teenagers, Coaches, M&Ms and any other camp attendees during the week of TeenStreet.  Each counsellor is responsible for providing short term intervention during the camp as needs arise.  Relevant notes are taken and referrals to locally based counsellors for ongoing post-camp support are made as required.
