FOR OVER 40 YEARS, YMCA Christian Leadership Conferences have trained day and resident camp leaders, child care workers, YMCA staff and volunteers. During a weekend training event, workshops are conducted on a variety of leadership subjects which may include the YMCA Rag/Leather Program, the C in the YMCA, devotions, storytelling, prayer, discipline, chapel, values education and much more. A Christian atmosphere is projected without preaching a particular doctrine. Participants work in a variety of settings with trained adult facilitators and YMCA staff. Sharing Christian values and the YMCA Mission in all YMCA programs is emphasized. Since the first Christian Leadership Conference in 1974 the program has grown and now includes conferences from coast to coast. Over 2,000 young adults attend each year.
