Summers can be overwhelming for youth ministers – with so many different events offered that bless the teenage soul, how does a leader discern which opportunities are the best “fit” for the teens in their specific youth group? The good news is that Life Teen has a little something for every teen and every parish.
We’ve crafted an entire weekend with the sole focus of helping you start solid youth ministry in your parish. Bring your priest, music minister, new staff or Core Members, and anyone else who is a key player in your ministry! You're guaranteed to walk away from this training plugged in to a vast network of support, knowing that you're not in this alone.

Donate To Haiti Mission Base
On January 12, 2010, a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck just 16 miles west of Port-au-Prince, the capital of Haiti. The earthquake leveled the beautiful country, and left more than 1.5 million people homeless, 316,000 dead and devastation across the land.
Life Teen sent multiple mission trips to the country to aid in the rebuilding efforts, and one fact quickly became clear: the people of Haiti, especially the teens, were hungry for Jesus Christ.
No Catholic Youth Ministry existed in Haiti, but after an earnest appeal from the Bishop of Haiti, the St. John Paul II Center for the New Evangelization was founded in Madian, Haiti.
Just as St. Paul writes “I have become all things to all, to save at least some” in 1 Corinthians 9:22, so too does the Life Teen base and missionaries in Haiti impact and interact with the community.
With multiple families and full-time Life Teen missionaries, both Haitian and American, living on the base, a full Catholic School welcoming students, and mission trip groups regularly visiting the base, the JP2 Center for the New Evangelization is a living, breathing part of the Haitian community.
No two days look the same in Haiti, but the mission always remains constant: lead teens closer to Christ. Sometimes it’s through renting a tanker truck to provide clean water to all in need after a hurricane, weekly Bible studies, hosting Life Teen Haiti Summer Camp, walking with teens to school, or even just providing a quiet place to pray. God has called Life Teen to Haiti and we’ve been blessed by the abundant blessings & glory He has shown in this mission!
In this mission of bringing Jesus to the people of Haiti, we simply cannot do it alone. Whether through prayer, financial support, or mission trip, we humbly implore you to join us in this mission.
The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. The need in Haiti is great, both in physical relief and goods, but especially in the spiritual sense. Please pray for the mission of Life Teen in Haiti, and prayerfully consider joining us today.
