    GOLD! Thanks for all your hard work and willingness to share. I had my first intern last summer, 2017, and had no plan other than showing her everything I do and allowing her to lead some things. The podcast gave me some excitement because I unknowingly was doing the things you said. I took her to all my meetings, allowed her to watch over as I planned events and why I did the things the way I did them, went through our budget and how it works, and went through My First Two Years in Youth Ministry. But now I am using the form and creating an actual outline of expectations and curriculum, yes my pastors laughed at the idea but when described they were happy about it and understood it. It also helps because I will be having 2 summer interns and I want them to know that they each have something specific and its not off the cuff. Thanks for the episode!
