Youth Development and Leadership Training (YDLP) at IAWAH guides youth on a journey toward becoming great men and women; centered in Christ and grounded in His truth.
In these challenging programs, participants can expect to explore topics in:
- work habits and skills
- community life
- personal character development
- spiritual formation.
Participants generally begin at the end of Grade 8 with RISE and continue through CREW and ROOTs in subsequent summers. Year four of YDLP offers a cross-cultural experience called REACH where participants continue to enhance their leadership skills. While the programs are designed to build on each other there are no program completion pre-requisites.
