“I learned that I can take on big responsibilities in my life and find ways to fit it in my schedule.”

“I learned how to both use the skills and talents I have for a greater good and to be able to better incorporate the skills that others possess.”


“I have learned that God puts things on my heart so that I can go and tell other people or that I can plan something that people really need in their life.”


“It feels great to work with a group on a common goal or project based in the Catholic faith and see the fruits of the groups effort and creativity.”

Diocesan Youth Leadership is a unique leadership formation and pastoral training opportunity for young people in 10th-12th grade.
