“Formation from the Connectors Programme has been invaluable to my growth and self-development and helped me understand my strengths. Opportunities to help lead high school retreats have pushed me out of my comfort zone and shown me that I am capable of than more than I think. Connectors retreats, prayer nights, community masses and reflective sessions encourage us to dig deep and figure out who we truly are and what we are called to do and be for others. They give us a space to practice our faith in a fresh, encouraging and relevant way with other young people. Some of the biggest needs of young people today are genuine relationships and a place of love and belonging. I feel very grateful that I am able to journey alongside my brothers and sisters, always strengthening our faith and learning more about ourselves and the leaders we are called to be in our world today.” – Claudia McLellan, 22, Connector
“The impact Logos and the Connectors programme has had on me is a profoundly significant one. My interactions with Logos have helped me grow as an individual, from honing my leadership skills, refining my presentation and delivery skills, but most importantly it has grounded me as a person.” – Jeffrey Iese, 24, Connector
Working alongside our staff and Board is a vibrant community of young adults youth work volunteers, called Connectors. Connectors, usually aged 18-24, are typically involved in tertiary education or work and dedicate some of their spare time to supporting the staff in the delivery of programmes and retreats.
Connectors have generally come to know us through our work in their schools and apply to join Logos when they finish high school.
Connectors receive training and formation throughout the year in order to grow in their self-development and skills base. This training is put into practice through regular opportunities to support the team in programme delivery as well as opportunities to develop their own initiatives. Connectors are key team members when we deliver programmes including school retreats.
Thanks to the Skycity Auckland Community Trust which has supported the delivery of the Connectors programme since 2013.
