- Publishes periodicals, literature, curricula, and other resource materials using print media and the internet;
- Organizes conferences, retreats, and seminars to help youth become informed and active members of their congregations;
- Encourages youth to consider vocations of service in the church;
- Establishes networks for congregations to share resources for youth ministry;
- Connects high-school and college youth with faithful Lutheran campus ministries and assists congregations and campus ministries in their service to Lutheran college students.
