LMU Youth Theology Institute

The LMU Youth Theology Institute is an innovative five-day summer institute at LMU—run by LMU professors, graduate, and undergraduate students.  We are inviting high school students to creatively and intensively explore their own future leadership potential and the “big spiritual questions” they have in dialogue with various religious traditions (including but not exclusively Roman Catholicism).  The institute is a holistic and integrative experience which seeks to capture young imaginations, cultivate the students’ spiritual growth, facilitate intellectual development, and promote leadership that is ethical, multicultural, and seeks justice in a broken world.  Students will express what they have experienced and learned through a short film created in groups and presented at a Friday showcase.
