There's definitely no one way, but some ministry leaders are requiring potential volunteers to take Class 101 prior to their coming aboard to serve! Others are asking their new volunteers to complete 101 within the first year of their ministry commitment. Many youth pastors are familiarizing themselves with all the content within 101-401 and suggesting specific topics based on the individual volunteer. For example, "Allison, I'd love for you to watch the course on Social Media to get a better handle on how your media choices can impact our students." Or "I'm with you on struggling to remember names, why don't we both watch the session on remembering names and we can discuss it and then help each other get better at it." There are so many topics in Classes 101-401 that most questions and issues that your leaders have will be covered in one of the 24 sessions.
