Course Start Date: June 15, 2011

Course End Date: August 10, 2011

Course Requirements:

You must be a member of the WYA and originally from the region of North America (United States and Canada).

Course Summary:

Offered to provide in-depth training to young leaders, this online training program requires an intensive commitment on behalf of our members. Training is a prerequisite for international internships and United Nations conference participation and is the gateway to further understanding of the principles of WYA and a deeper involvement with the organization. Accredited members build the Alliance by introducing and training other young people to the WYA foundational ideas.

The training will cover four major sections:

  • Philosophy of the human person
  • International documents and institutions
  • Key issues at the international level (global health, development, Millennium Development Goals)
  • Movements and individuals who have shaped history

The goals of the online training program are to help members understand and analyze today’s most pressing issues from the perspective of human dignity, freedom and solidarity; to promote and defend policies centered on the dignity of the human person at international and national levels; and to foster a culture of life in all activities and actions of our members.

If you are a member of WYA North America and are interested in enrolling in this leadership course, please email Amanda Pirih at by June 15th. The first assignment deadline for the course will be on June 22nd…so sign up as soon as possible!
