Catholic Youth Ministry will be hosting CMD Certificate in Youth Ministry Studies starting in October 2010. These classes are being offered at a reduced rate so we can gather as many youth ministry leaders from our diocese as possible.
Offering the training locally allows our diocese to welcome a cohort of parish and school leaders to study together, pray together, and work on projects and homework together as they complete work towards this nationally recognized certificate. A quick survey of youth ministry leaders in our diocese recently found 22 leaders interested in taking the classes and completing the certificate. Because we will host the courses at a parish and housing will not be necessary, the courses can be offered at a reduced rate. Sharing the cost allows CYM to charge participants and their parishes or schools $50 per person per two-day course, for a total of $100. CYM will contribute $50 per person per two-day course.
