The Duke Youth Academy for Christian Formation is a two-week summer program for selected high school students to live in an intentional Christian community on Duke’s campus in Durham, N.C.
2013 Youth Academy: June 16 – June 29
The Duke Youth Academy, part of Leadership Education at Duke Divinity, is an intensive encounter with Christian life. Days are patterned by worship through word and sacrament, reflection on scripture, study, service, play; practices ancient and modern that nourish the life of faith. You will leave the academy challenged to consider your baptismal vocation, confident that God is shaping your future in radical and exciting ways.
You will study theology with Duke Divinity School faculty. You will practice your faith through gestures of hospitality, servant ministry, justice, reconciliation and reflection. You will be challenged to “swim” in the waters of your baptism. You will meet extraordinary Christians who are transforming the world. Will you consider embracing this journey of faith?
