NORTH SIDE KAIROS 16 SEEKS YOUTH LEADERS The application deadline has been extended! North Side Kairos 16 is still looking for high school or first year college students for their leadership team. Applicants must:
have already attended a Kairos retreat, such as through a Catholic high school or at a parish;
be open to lead as part of a diverse team of youth and adults for this co-ed, multi-parish experience; and
complete a leader application and return it to the retreat coordinators by Sunday, March 29.
Chosen leaders will receive thorough leadership training in the spring and summer to prepare them for the peer-to-peer retreat. This is a great opportunity for teens to grow in faith, develop communication skills and gain experience in leading others.

Through these events, schools focus on the value Catholic education provides to young people and its contributions to our church, our communities and our nation.
