NEW YORK – The Department of Youth and Young Adult Ministries (Y2AM) has launched a new crowd funding initiative to help raise money to develop much needed youth and young adult ministry resources.
Known best for its weekly video series “Be the Bee,” the Y2AM Team produces an extensive offering of digital resources for youth and young adult ministry, from videos and podcasts to blogs and Scriptural annotations, along with monthly “Be the Bee” retreats that offer workshops for youth, parents, youth workers, and young adults.
Patreon funds will be directed to both small projects, like stock photo licenses to improve the quality of videos and blogs, and larger projects, like hiring video editors and allowing the Y2AM Team to expand its current offerings and create a complete set of digital and print resources for parishes and camps.
People can support the initiative by visiting patreon.com/y2am.
Patreon is a popular crowd-funding platform that allows people to support the creation of high-quality content. Patrons can pledge as little as $1 a month, and will receive certain perks depending on their commitment level. Possible perks include being featured on Y2AM’s wall of thanks, handwritten post cards, special thanks in video descriptions, and on screen thanks in “Be the Bee” episodes.
