I don’t feel like my youth group accepts me! [video]

One of the things I love about doing these weekly Youth Questions videos on YouTube is that I hear some of the “behind the scenes” things that are going in youth groups from teenagers. The question we answered last week is one such question.

“I stopped going to youth group because I don’t feel like the other kids there accept me. Is that okay?”

Several youth workers and former youth group members answered this question for the teen in the video above. If you have any advice for this teen and other teens who watch the video in the future and are in the same situation, go to the video on YouTube and comment on it there. Leave your advice for these teens as a youth worker.

Here’s another question from a teenager that we’ll answer in an upcoming Youth Questions video:

We had a nice youth group around 15 people. Now 7 people have graduated and our group doesn’t have the same energy and excitement that it once had. What can our group do to make youth group exciting again?

If you’d like to be a part of that video, record your answer to a video and send it to me here sometime this week or next week. And thanks so much for helping us impact teenagers around the world through YouTube!
