Youth Leaders’ Formation Course (YLFC) is a unique and life changing event hosted each year by the Archdiocese of Sydney Description The YLFC is an opportunity for participants to grow closer to Christ whilst being formed in knowledge of the Catholic Faith. Those who have attended the course speak of the way in which they have been deeply touched and transformed. Our world needs strong Christian leaders and leaders need formation. The YLFC builds on the fruits and graces of World Youth Day 2008 and offers a strong foundation to help young adults become leaders after the heart of Jesus; leaders who will contribute to the life of the Church in Australia. It is a time of personal growth in holiness.

The YLFC is an opportunity for participants to grow closer to Christ whilst being formed in knowledge of the Catholic Faith.

Over the course participants will hear presentations from over 30 high quality and dynamic Catholic speakers from around the country. The YLFC is run by an enthusiastic team from the Archdiocese and includes a full time priest chaplain.
