ONE Programme Participants
Do you have an innovative project idea for a ONE Programme Participant (OPP)? Hosting an OPP is an excellent opportunity for districts, circuits, churches and church projects to have input from, and into, a young person based in their project for a year-long, paid, internship with training-provided. The OPP Host Application Packs are available now!
We are always keen to find a wide variety of different projects that can offer an exciting and supported year to an OPP. For 2018/19 we are looking for projects with a particular emphasis on evangelism and vocation, which will contribute to the development of a young person’s calling. The host projects do not necessarily have to be children’s or youth work – in the past we have had young people placed with food banks, creative arts projects and Street Pastors to name a few.
The aim is for each of the 11 regions to have a suitable Host Project. Churches and projects, from across the Connexion, or that have a link to the Methodist Church, are invited to apply to host a young person on placement with the ONE Programme.
More details, including applications packs.The closing date for applications is 9am Tuesday 6th March 2018.
Please do consider being a Host Project and submit an application form by the deadline. If you have any further questions or queries, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org

This project has been working with minority ethnic girls in 4 Edinburgh secondary schools, promoting social inclusion, learning of different cultures and historical events, and raising awareness to the issues that many of these young women encounter on a regular basis.
