Armidale Youth Futures are local volunteers from the Christian churches of Armidale who have united to form an SRE (Special Religious Education) Board. We seek to uphold the good news of Jesus through Christian SRE for the spiritual wellbeing of students.
AYF was formed in 2001 with the vision of working together with the Armidale Ministers’ Fellowship to extend the SRE program beyond primary school into Armidale’s public high schools through the appointment of a specialist SRE teacher. In God’s kindness this vision has been realised through the prayer and financial support of churches, individuals and businesses in the Armidale community.
The AYF Management Committee includes representatives from a range of Christian churches and a representative from the Armidale Ministers’ Fellowship.
In 2016 AYF became an affiliate Board of Generate Services. Generate is an inter-denominational Christian organisation which has worked in NSW public schools for more than 15 years, successfully employing SRE Teachers since 2005 and Chaplains since 2007. Working closely with local church communities, Generate Services employ close to 300 staff and are supported by a large network of volunteers.
