Youth Leadership Workshop (YLW) unites 100+ rising juniors and seniors from parishes all across our diocese for four days of leadership training and spiritual growth. The goal of YLW is to empower and educate young leaders about their faith and the gifts, talents, and abilities God has given them. By recognizing their leadership strengths and extraordinary qualities, the youth can then return to their parish communities and enhance/ignite their youth programs!
YLW participation is through invitation only as we rely on parish pastors, youth/campus ministers, DREs, and faculty to recommend ideal candidates for this program. YLW is grounded in our Catholic faith as participants will experience unique Masses each day throughout Camp Hillmont. During the workshop, teens will interact in small groups to explore their leadership styles, understand Christ’s call to servant leadership, and build lasting relationships.
