When Hans Kristian Skaar started his career as a volunteer youth leader at the age of 16, he received no job description, and the only training he got was the previous leader saying, “Good luck, I will be praying for you.” But he soon realized there were a lot of expectations, some of which he was not aware of until he failed to meet them. How can we help the next generation of youth leader gain a clearer picture of what is expected of them?
