Youth who have completed 9th – 12th grade are invited to apply for this year’s Augsburg Youth Theology Institute (AYTI), “The Confluence.” AYTI is a weeklong on-campus experience for high school students at Augsburg University with daily exploration of the neighborhood and the city.

Together in the community, high school participants learn how to practice vocational discernment through a variety of experiences, including

  • intentional community building with small groups led by college mentors
  • daily spiritual practices of prayer, journaling, first word, and worship
  • learning how spiritual gifts and strengths inventories can deepen our understanding of the gifts God gives to us
  • reading books and articles that invite academic inquiry as a way of understanding theology and vocation
  • community-based learning in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood and the greater Twin Cities
