Diocesan Youth Leadership Opportunities

Youth and Adults Invited to Apply for DYLC

Youth retreats in the Diocese of Upper South Carolina are planned by the Diocesan Youth Leadership Committee (DYLC). This group of high school youth and adults from throughout the Diocese assist in the creation and implementation of youth events and help in setting the policies and procedures which govern retreats. Applications for DYLC are accepted during the Spring semester of each school year. We are particularly seeking representation from congregations not currently represented on DYLC. The application is available here: icon DYLC Application 2017-18.  The deadline for the application and referrals for the 2017-18 school year is March 27th, 2016.

Design Team Applications

Some of our diocesan youth want a taste of what it is like to be on DYLC before applying. Some youth cannot make the commitment necessary to be on DYLC but can commit to one retreat. Other youth want to lead events at a young age. We even have Relational Ministers—these are high school youth in our diocese who act as small group leaders for middle schoolers, who would like to be a part of the middle school retreats. Applying for a design team can help youth be involved on a diocesan level in these ways. For more information, contact Kellie Wilson by This email address is being protected from spambots.
