Suggestions urgently needed: Evangelism Training for young people

Ok readers, you have never been needed like this before.

I am preparing to serve this summer as a counsellor and instructor for the wonderful St. Michael's Conference. It's a 7-day conference where an intentional community of prayer, support, and education helps to form young Christians to be witnesses to the world of the Saving Power of Jesus Christ. There we 1) will have fun and 2) talk about dealing with angels and demons, praying and fasting, and other hard-core matters for Christ's more serious kids. (cf Fr. Nelson's course on Defending Against the Dark Arts. So cool) My topic for six daily class meetings will be learning to share your faith! Scary scary.

Sure, I have a hum-dinger course plan and some great ideas ready to go, but I want to provide the absolute best practicum on evangelism techniques for this elite group. Do any of you have any great ideas or materials for this sort of training? Please fire away in the comments. I would really appreciate any suggestions, since I happen to know that some of you are quite good at this sort of thing...
