We're looking at using the Alpha youth program with our 7th-12th grade youth group this year (about 10 students), with volunteer youth leaders.  What has been your experience with this? Any suggestions?


I have been running Youth Alpha for the last 11 years and it is a great tool. one of the best youth tools I have used. it has just been revised again and so stays relevant and kids like it  It is a great place for good discussion and letting kids talk about faith issues in a safe environment.  It is great for both churched and non churched kids and I would recommend it highly.

I have been using Alpha for youth even with adults and they loved it. No one argued that it’s not for them or that it’s boring. 


I found the tool helpful for discussions - it stops every 5-7 minutes for discussions and the question appears on the screen. That’s extremely helpful, along with the toolbox sheet with additional questions for the topic. 


I have not used it with youth, but it’s being used also on campuses for college students and they are engaging the material. 


In terms of content, many things can be argued, but overall you can use it if you want to teach the basic Christian doctrines and to help youth deepen their spiritual disciplines.
