How can adolescents and young adults make healthy choices in contemporary society? To discuss the issues 105 youth, young adults and leaders participated in a pilot project Youth Alive, 13 – 18 August 2019 in Tirana Albania, with a further training in Klaipėda, Lithuania, 19-24 August.
Youth Alive is a youth discipleship initiative designed to build resilience among teens and young adults by inspiring and equipping them to make healthy choices. The programme is coordinated at the Seventh-day Adventist World Church headquarters in Washington, DC (GC), and was run in partnership with the Trans-European Division. The initiative is divided into two parts with an initial training for leaders who are then joined by adolescents and young adults for a Youth Alive Congress.
