Some Top Tips for Running Alpha for Youth Online

What you will need:

The Zoom app

It’s free to download but we’d recommend the paid subscription version that can host meetings longer than 40 minutes. (Though other apps could work as well, Zoom is our #1 choice, especially for groups of more than 12 people). Zoom has a number of great tutorials to help you get it all figured out!

A solid internet connection

The Discussion Guide

Have the Discussion Guide handy with questions sent beforehand to your hosts and helpers.

Preparing Well:
