Youth ages 12 and up are encouraged to join us and begin developing their leadership skills taking on certain roles and responsibilities. Through participating as young leaders they will be able to practice their communication skills; develop their gifts through holding leadership roles; and be formed in faith through participating in a variety of faith-filled activities.

Leadership Opportunities (Ages 13 to 17)

Christ the King University Parish offers some opportunities for high school students that are both leadership oriented and rooted in the Catholic faith. Students who wish to be engaged can volunteer with Christ the King University Parish's Children's Programs, the Parish Coffee House, Peace Camp and other citywide outreach projects that take place year to year.

London Interfaith Peace Camp
The London Interfaith Peace Camp (LIPC), is a collaborative community project that encourages understanding and cooperation among Jewish, Christian, and Muslim faith groups. Rooted in the shared values of these Abrahamic traditions, the LIPC is a week-long day camp offered to students in grades 1 through 8. Through this day camp experience, the campers and the staff build friendships and understanding with peers from other local Abrahamic faith traditions. The informal social setting of a camp, combined with intentional presentations about Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, teach enduring lessons about building peace across all three Abrahamic faith traditions
