BETSY AMICO – Certified Trainer


All high school and middle school Core Members – new and veteran – will be blessed by this comprehensive training day. It’s amazing to see how much your Core can be formed in this powerful training day. Give your Core Members the gift of solid Catholic youth ministry training before your kickoff this fall, then see its impact on your teens.

Life Teen Certified trainers will share insight and training for effective youth ministry. While we will use some Life Teen verbiage, this training is universal for all parishes seeking to minister through a relational approach that calls, forms and sets forth teens and tweens as disciples.  This is both comprehensive and meant to help parishes create sustainable programming.

Our keynote presenter is national speaker Betsy Amico. Betsy serves as Life Teen Area Contact in the Buffalo, NY area. in addition to being a Life Teen Certified Trainer, Betsy has a decade of experience as a parish youth minister and is a strong evangelist, gifted speaker and blogger.
