Forum for Theological Exploration FTE Leaders

Youth Theology Network (YTN) Capacity-Building Grant

High school youth need opportunities to explore their faith, Christian traditions and calling in the world. These young people hold the promise of a more hope-filled future as they courageously lead and serve the church and the world.

The Youth Theology Network (YTN) Capacity-Building Grant gives institutes support to expand program leaders’ knowledge, skills and expertise to accompany youth in their exploration of their purpose, passion and call.

FTE awards YTN Capacity Building Grants to youth theology programs who received funding from Lilly Endowment Inc. in 2015 or 2016. If you are unsure whether your program is eligible, contact Jodi L. Porter.

Recipients receive $5,000 to implement efforts over a 12-month period. Supported activities may include regional gatherings of peers, research on vocation and youth ministry, or the development of related resources.
