ONE Opportunity is something we are really proud of in the Yorkshire North and East Methodist District. It brings together young people from a range of backgrounds and experiences to work out their discipleship together and in their own churches.
Celebrating the vision of young people, interns design their own project, based on their own gifts and abilities and the needs of their own church. Once this is set up and approved, they are paid to work for 3 hours a week on their own project, supported by a volunteer project manager, someone who will meet with them for mentoring and the District coordinating team.
Over the course of the year (which starts in September) interns from across the District get together for an induction day and three residential weekends where they become part of a learning and reflecting community, that also has a lot of fun.
Applications are normally submitted in June and are jointly completed by a young person and a representative of their church. Young people need to be 16 -23 in the September of the year that they wish to participate.
