Christian leadership institute (CLI)

GROW in faith, ENGAGE with community & be EMPOWERED to lead 

The Christian Leadership Institute (CLI), a program designed to empower young adults to become leaders in their community, church, and society, returned in 2022 with a dynamic program!
The Institute is a meaningful week-long overnight leadership experience that will unlock the potential of high school students to give back and influence others.  It is designed to meet the needs of those who are leaders in high school or parish youth ministry by empowering them to be leaders in their Christian community and society. 
This year's program will be held June 25-30 on the grounds of Camp Turner in beautiful Allegany State Park and will bring together youth leaders from all over Western New York. 

Under the guidance of program directors and CLI veterans Katie Kittleson and Patty Spear, a qualified, energetic and experienced team of adult group leaders focused learning on:

  • Group dynamics
  • Planning and decision-making
  • The responsibilities that come with being a leader incorporating Gospel virtues
