Great Questions for Youth Group Graduates

Kara Powell | Jan 7, 2010

On Tuesday we had a lunch at Fuller with a handful of local youth workers to talk about the types of resources high school seniors need, especially given our College Transition Project research. One of the youth pastors said that he’s trying to take advantage of youth group graduates being home for winter break by grabbing some one on one time with them. When he’s with them, he tries to ask them a few important questions, namely:

What have you done that you are you proud of so far in college?

What do you wish you could do differently?

Are you being who you want to be?

I love how thoughtful this youth worker is being, and I applaud the direct and thoughtful questions he’s asking college students.
