Youth at GoldmineGoldmine is an intense leadership school for youth focusing on self-reflection and leadership skills. Youth learn concrete leadership skills, learn to lead a worship in a wide variety of youth worship styles, and work to articulate the faith based grounding for their values and leadership. The day includes youth led worship, silent self-reflection time, and small group reflection time in addition to time for hanging out and playing together! The school is taught by pairs of youth and adult co-trainers. Youth co-trainers are former Goldmine students.

There is an age range change this year. Youth should be graduating from grades 9-12 or the equivalent home school age and 14-18. Youth outside that range who wish to attend Goldmine should contact the Adult Dean This email address is being protected from spambots.
