You might believe these young adults are the salt of the earth, but they will tell you that the salt of the earth are the people they interacted with, the communities they endeavored to serve. And that their own lives are changed forever, seasoned with richness, depth, and flavor.

Join us as we explore the theme SALT OF THE EARTH, highlighting the importance of equipping twenty-something leaders - not merely a year - but for a lifetime, positively impacting the community and workplace they serve for decades to come.

Come and invest in a vision of global citizenship where leadership is enriched with the ethics of service and the tools to navigate the complexities the world demands today. Savor a taste of this future.
