First of all one has to make sure they are not over looking existing programs in the community. Many churches have youth programs that excel over State and Local programs. The idea is to combine their efforts, while you enhance the program to meet the needs of the youth in your ministry or outreach program.
Second you need to write up a plan, a curriculum. Most youth love music. That is usually first on the agenda. Now that the computer age has come in their lives, games and study programs can be combined making it fun for the youth to compete, no matter how their physical being may be.
Third by working with a 5 country outreach program our ministry learned first hand how to combine programs, but also when it was necessary to separate different programs. For an example, the mentally and physically challenged youth out reach program was kept separate, but we sought out things that were educational and fun for each of those youth. You must learn to reach out to the other groups in the area, meet with them, and go over their programs to see you are not duplicating what they are doing and hurting their efforts in the community. In addition, local and state offices can be very helpful in helping with financial situations.
