Goldmine 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 are one or two offerings of this training each summer in the Central East Region. This year's offerings are listed below.
- Goldmine Youth Leadership School West ~ Monday, July 6-Sunday, July 12 at a location near OMD's Summer Institute.
- Goldmine Youth Leadership School East ~ Sunday, August 17-Saturday, August 23 at Unitarian Church of Staten Island, NY.
What youth say about Goldmine:
"This was the single most transformative experience of my entire life."
"Youth Leadership was by far the highlight of my summer last year and one of the most valuable experiences that I have ever had. I promise that I am not exaggerating at all!"
