YOUTH LEADERS ONLY: Those three words tell you the WHO, but they don't come close to telling you the WHAT. To be effective in student ministry a youthworker needs to be aware of and be equipped to use all forms of music (Christian music, worship music, mainstream music) and media (movies, books, games). That’s the WHAT of YLO - equipping youthworkers to use music-media to reach kids for Christ and help them grow in their relationship with Him.
Youth Leaders Only equips you 24/7, Anytime, Anywhere to use music and media in your ministry. YLO members get four digital shipments of amazing resources each year ... the newest Christian music, Bible studies, articles, chord charts, mainstream song discussion starters, thematic listings, and bonus music videos and Bible studies. Plus members have access to the music-media vault with resources from the past 2 decades.
Not every student ministry has the same needs or the same available resources. But every student ministry needs to use music and media That's why we provide a range of Youth Leaders Only membership levels.
Buying a "single box" means you are purchasing a single edition of Youth Leaders Only ... essentially one quarter of a membership. Each box includes either HOT (more Alternative, Hard, Rap, etc.) or MILD (more Pop, R&B, Acoustic) albums:
When you purchase a single edition of Youth Leaders Only, you don't receive a Music Video Loop — those are only available to YLO Members. And only Members have their very own "Digital Bookshelf' on the website with instant access to thousands of Bible studies, articles, chord charts, and more.
We created the different "flavors" of Youth Leaders Only so you can customize your YLO membership to meet your Youth Ministry's musical needs.
The MAIN picks aren't picked based on their musical style; they're just really good albums that everybody needs to own. We also make sure there's always at least one worship album in the MAIN selections. The HOT albums include styles like hard core, rap, hip-hop, and rock. The MILD albums include styles like R&B, coffee-house acoustic (we just made up that style), pop, and dance.
YLO Select Members choose one of the three flavors for their membership
YLO Original Members always get MAIN, then choose either HOT or MILD to complete the box. Some people need both, but don't have the budget to upgrade to Works, so they choose to alternate, which means getting a HOT box one quarter and then a MILD box the next.
YLO Works Members get all three flavors in every box: MAIN, HOT and MILD.
