Event Details:

The Yale Youth Ministry Institute presents "Why Youth Ministry? A Beacon of Joy in the Midst of Suffering," a weeklong course designed for pastors, seminarians, lay leaders, and youth ministers. Each night from 6-9 p.m., participants will gather for evening fellowship dinners, lectures, and workshop breakouts to name and discuss some of the adversities our youth face every day. Throughout the week, we will learn with and from one another some concrete ways to combat these adversities to better nurture the foundations of joyful, thriving lives.

Yale Divinity School's standard charge for a Summer Study course is $450. The Youth Ministry Institute is providing each registrant for this workshop a $400 scholarship, reducing the tuition for each registrant to $50 for the entire weeklong program.
