According to the 7th-day Adventist Church Manual, Page 104:
The various youth organizations of the church should work closely with the youth ministries department of the conference.
Adventist Youth Ministries (AYM)—The church works for and with its youth through the AYM. Under the AYM, youth are to work together, in cooperation with the wider church community, towards the development of a strong youth ministry that includes spiritual, mental, and physical development of each individual, Christian social interaction, and an active witnessing program that supports the general soul-winning plans of the church. The goal of AYM should be to involve all youth in activities that will lead them to active church membership and train them for Christian service.
AYM Mission—To lead young people into a saving relationship with Jesus Christ and help them embrace His call to discipleship.
AYM Motto—The love of Christ compels us.
AYM Aim—The Advent Message to all the world in my generation.
The youth ministries program of the church comprises three broad categories, namely:
1 Junior Youth (Adventurers: ages 6-9 and Pathfinders: ages 10-15)
2 Senior Youth (Ambassadors: ages 16-21 and Young Adults: ages 22-30+), and
3 Public Campus Students: ages 16-30+.
