Holden Servant Leadership Experience


Holden Youth Weekends

After a successful 2013 event, we hoped to host another event in 2014. Due to "mine remediation" a May 2014 event will not be possible. We hope to return to our traditional May Youth Weekends in 2015.

Hosted by Trinity Lutheran College in partnership with Holden Village

Where: Holden Village, near Chelan, WA

What: A servant leadership training event for high school youth with potential for leadership in church, school, community, and the world. Using Holden Village as a “leadership lab,” the youth will be involved a variety of service projects each day, participate in Holden’s worship life, and be trained in a servant leadership process developed by the Service And Learning Leadership Team (SALLT) Project at Trinity Lutheran College.

This leadership event is being provided in place of the Holden May Youth Weekends, which will likely resume after mine remediation work is completed at Holden Village. For more information about Holden Village, visit www.holdenvillage.org.

Trainers: Dave Ellingson and Mark Jackson, professors at Trinity Lutheran College and leaders of the SALLT Project.

Who can attend: Two youth per church (preferably one male and one female) and one adult advisor. We recommend sophomores or juniors who exercise leadership potential. Please note: The minimum age is 15 (at the time of the event) as required by Holden Village for safety reasons. There are no exceptions to this policy. 

The total number of participants for this event is capped at 45 due to space limitations at Holden Village.

When: To be determined.

Cost: To be determined.
