Youth Ministry Apprenticeship Program (YMAP)

YMAP is meant to equip and prepare potential leaders for a youth ministry position in the diocese. Leaders will learn not in a classroom, but by doing actual youth ministry. If you have a passion for working with young people and a desire to grow in your faith, this is the perfect program for you! Or, if your parish wants to create a sustainable youth ministry, this is a great place to start!

To learn more, read the YMAP brochure. For more information, contact Christian Harvey at


Youth Vision

AYMC Youth retreats and programming are geared towards students in grade 6-12 , as well as first-year college and university students. Once a year we come together as a diocese for our annual Diocese of Toronto Youth Retreat.

The retreat is for youth ages 12-18. Throughout the course of the weekend, youth enjoy a variety of contemporary and traditional forms of worship, which let them experience the great diversity of worship the Anglican Church has to offer!
