Leadership is one of the 5 values of GroveYouth. Because of this, we want to offer students opportunities to grow in discipleship through leadership development. The High School Leader in Training (LIT) Program offers high schools students a chance to develop this leadership through learning and serving in community. This year we are asking for applications and commitments per semester as opposed to a whole year commitment. If you are unable to commit to our team in the first semester, you can apply for the second semester in December.
