YAT

yat1

YAT (or, the Youth Advisory Team) are a group of young people who have been brought together to advise the Provincial and his Council on ‘the world of the youth’. Since its creation in 2009 YAT has advised on issues such, the continued involvement of volunteers and projects which help those most in need, among other things.

Find below the reports we have given to the Provincial of the Salesians:

YAT Salesian Volunteer Involvement Report

 

YAT-Salesian-involvement-Survey1

For the last few months YAT (the Youth Advisory Team) have been working on a report on Salesian volunteer involvement and continued involvement. This report follows the Vocations report which has already been published and well received.

The report is based upon surveys of Salesian volunteers, it tries to find out what things can be done to keep people involved in the Salesian network, what opportunities can help people to stay involved and increase their involvement alongside other commitments in their lives. (more…)

 

YAT Vocations Report

 

vocations-cover

Today is Vocation Sunday in the Catholic Church. To coincide with this, we publish the Youth Advisory Team (YAT) Salesian Vocation report.

Late last year we were asked by the Provincial to try to investigate why young people aren’t entering into Religious life.  The YAT conducted an anonymous survey to explore people’s experiences and attitudes to vocation, and their suggestions for ways in which Salesian vocations could increase.

The report sums up the findings of the survey and suggestions of what action could be taken by the Province to improve the number of people entering into vocations, alongside and as a complement to what the Province is already doing.

We found there were many reasons why a person might feel apprehensive about embracing religious life, many of which were misconceptions of what entering into Religious life as a Salesian would actually mean in a day-to-day sense.

The report was presented to the Provincial, his council and the Vocations team and was very well received.

The report can be found here.

Over 150 educators from our Salesian Schools and Retreat Centres in Great Britain took part in a Salesian Education Conference on Saturday 9th October 2010. The theme of the day was Educating Young People to Social Justice. The conference, organised by the Salesian Youth Ministry Team and facilitated by YAT (the Youth Advisory Team), took place in the Archbishop Grimshaw Catholic High School in Solihull, near Birmingham.

Teachers and senior staff from the five secondary schools run by the Salesians of Don Bosco and the one secondary school run by the Salesian Sisters were present, together with members of the youth retreat teams from Savio House and Brettargh Holt. (more…)
