I don’t know how we’d make it in this world without the internet. I just love searching and finding wonderful ideas to use that will make a lasting and eternal impact on the teens I work with……….. well, I just hope that they make at least enough of an impact on them that they remain awake, and maybe take home one important truth from what was taught. Then, there are the crazy unrelated games that have absolutely nothing in the world to do with the lesson.
With that said, here is my growing list Resources for the CrAzY Youth Worker (you might want to bookmark or pin this post, as it will be updated often as I find more good stuff to add).
