How to Join 

So long as there is a division in your area, it is very simple to become a member of St John Youth. 

We recommend using the Youth Map to find your closest division that meets on your preferred night. Come along and visit to see if the Youth Programme could be right for you. 

Even if you might have already decided you want to join, we require young people to attend 2 Divisional Nights to ensure you are absolutely sure you want to.

After you have attended at least two divisional nights go to this link to enrol.

The main requirement to be a leader is time. What we need are capable people who can find time to help run our programmes. In return you get to help young people develop and grow, watch them mature and add something to their lives.
