Join us this Summer

Join us June 23-June 28, 2019 for our next Augsburg Youth Theology Institute.

Stewarding Creation in our Neighborhoods:
Science & Theology in Action

Scholars at this year’s AYTI will develop leadership skills and put creation care theology and science knowledge into action. The world and neighborhoods we live in are series of complicated yet beautiful systems and networks. Therefore, we’ll practice thinking in systems–both ecologically and vocationally within spheres of community, home, congregation, and school. We will use faith-based environmental STEM curriculum to practice problem-finding and problem-solving and then apply STEM to greening our churches, homes, and communities. With the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood as our classroom, we will name our strengths and explore how our gifts and talents meet the needs of the world.
If you are currently in high school (grades 9-12), we encourage you to apply for the 2019 AYTI.

This year is about science. Do I have to be a science genius in order to understand what’s going on?

No, definitely not! Although science will be a part of AYTI this year, you do not have to excel in science in order to attend this year. We will also be focusing heavily on the environment and theology, so you should still apply even if science isn’t your number one strength.
