Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity. 1 Timothy 4:12

412 Leadership Training is a unique 3-week leadership program that focuses on equipping youth to serve, love and lead like Jesus.

Throughout the 3 weeks, participants will develop leadership skills, go deeper in their relationships with Jesus and become equipped to serve others effectively. Through personal development, community living, outdoor adventure and leadership training our goal is to challenge young people to live out their faith in such a way that it transforms their world.

412 is designed to give a balance of classroom teaching & hands-on experience to engage the participants. The program offers opportunities to lead in JOY's camp programming as well as reach out to serve the local community.

Some of the topics covered will be personal growth and discipleship, facilitation skills, group dynamics/team building, campfire and program skills, cabin-leading expectations and challenges. Mature leaders will live in a cabin setting (and sometimes a tent!) with program participants. Successful participants in program will be considered for cabin leader and support staff positions at JOY in future, and will gain valuable leadership training for other ministries and opportunities as well.
