For each event, we select a team of undergraduate students who are some of the most faith-filled, outgoing, and fun individuals from across the country. These mentors have a variety of backgrounds and interests and show an extraordinary capacity to harmonize their faith with their work and studies. They are very excited to meet, guide, and walk this journey of discovery with the youth they encounter.


We are lucky to have such a diverse pool of individuals to teach our students at each Academy. Whether local pastors, university and seminary professors, business professionals, or lay leaders, students and mentors alike learn from Brethren leaders in a variety of ways.
