We asked everyone enrolled in a Blueprint credentialing track to complete their work by December 15, 2022. We offered One Heart retreats in the fall for people who were in the Blueprint system and missed their regional one. Those who did not finish their work or recieve an extension will need start in the new system by registering for New Leader Cohorts in March to begin their journey. 



We have a rich legacy of people development in YFC and since 2009, the Leadership Blueprint has given full-time, part-time, and volunteer staff a strong foundation in ministry.

Our goal is to give staff a deep grasp of the 5 Essentials and 3Story, the dynamics and particulars of each national ministry, and to reaffirm the value of a deep abiding relationship with Jesus as the most important aspect of their ministry.

3 Leadership Blueprint tracks offered:

Veteran staff who are interested in taking part in various training events are welcome.  In fact, our desire is to expose veteran staff to many pieces of the Blueprint in hopes they might facilitate a training experience in the future.
