Emory Day of Giving coming soon, March 22-23, 2023!
Youth Theological Initiative

The Youth Theological Initiative (YTI) Summer Academy gathers high school students from around the world to Emory University to explore their questions about God, faith, and the world. We believe that the world needs youth empowered and equipped with theological skills to help build a more just and compassionate world, and so we introduce them to theological skills usually learned in seminary.

The Impact of Your Gift

You can help make the life-transforming YTI experience possible for even more students. We are committed to making the Summer Academy accessible to ALL youth, regardless of their financial circumstances. Your gift will be used to offer scholarship support to help YTI remain accessible for young people committed to creating a better world

Through your generosity you can make YTI possible for students like Franklin Stanley. Since attending YTI Franklin says, “The way I look at life has completely changed. I’m much more intentional in my thinking and interactions with the people around me, interpreting, analyzing and examining people’s words, actions and demeanor. Now, I give people my respect and try to do good by them, regardless of who they are.”
