The Leadership Training Program 

is an ECYD powered program for elementary through high school that

specializes in teaching boys and girls to live virtuously while being a leader in the world.

The LTP Director for the boys is Father Mariano Ballestrem, LC.

The LTP Director for the girls is Amelia Hoover, CRC.  

Regnum Christi Missionaries, year-long volunteers, assist in running the program.

The pillars of the Leadership Training Program are spirituality, community, and mission. 

Each grade school group does one large community service project each semester such as

visiting a nursing home or orphanage, feeding the homeless, or cleaning up a community center.


The Leadership Training Program is designed to equip youth with the tools to integrate leadership skills with a Christian worldview in order to make a positive impact on society.


The mission of the Leadership Training Program is to inspire, guide, and form youth to become strong leaders through the example of Jesus Christ.


A leader is an individual who seeks to imitate Christ’s example through dedication and service, inspiring others to make a positive impact.
