Youth Development and Leadership Training (YDLP) at IAWAH will guide youth on a journey of becoming great men and women centered in Christ and grounded in His truth. In these challenging programs, participants can expect to engage topics in: work habits and skills, community life, personal character development and 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.
Participants can expect to:
- pursue depth of character through an environment of honesty, accountability and committed community;
- experience the conviction and empowerment of God’s Spirit;
- develop a Godly foundation of truth, disciplines and principles;
- be challenged holistically (physically, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually) and see growth in each area.
