​Developing the next generation of servant leaders is why we do everything we do at CYL.  Our leadership curriculum is organic and action-oriented, focusing on thirteen themes developed from a collection of the best ideas of great thinkers, educators, partner universities, corporations, and our own youth.  It is our curriculum that develops our leaders into self-aware, civic-minded, and environmentally-sensitive change makers.  We believe the best education should be founded and challenged in experiences with others.  This is why we ask our Young Leaders to “take action” at the end of each Leadership Exploration Meeting.

We believe our curriculum will develop well-rounded Young Leaders with a clear passion, a life long commitment to both serving and learning, an enthusiasm for adventure, and a depth of perspective.  What truly sets us apart is our Young Leaders ability to take these leadership themes and apply them to making a difference!
