Mrs Broad (23) has been working with Balclutha's South Life apostolic church for three weeks and plans to set up events and run activities for youth that may not have been available in the past.
"It's about trying to provide alternative forms of entertainment than going down to the pub," she said.
She hopes to work with other youth workers from Milton to Clinton to organise large events such as a fireworks display on November 6, and hopes to be able to take young people to even bigger events in Dunedin.
Mrs Broad, who is originally from Cape Town, in South Africa, married local farmer Jeremy Broad after the pair met at bible college in Perth and has been living in Balclutha for just six months.
With a diploma in Christian ministry, a certificate in youth work and a passion for the performing arts, Mrs Broad said she had quite a bit of experience working with youth in the church and in the community.
The youth worker role was a partnership between South Life and the South Otago Youth Trust.
