To cultivate the next generation of TYM urban youth leaders who will, in turn, develop authentic relationships with TYM students, guiding them spiritually, emotionally & academically.


This year-long experience is a pivotal time period in each teen’s life – no matter if they come from affluent or impoverished backgrounds. The lessons learned throughout the cohort extend well into adulthood, covering topics such as spiritual leadership, cultural competency and emotional intelligence.

Areas of Impact:

Spiritual – Pursue a vibrant and personal faith in Jesus Christ

Character – Develop resilience for facing difficult life circumstances

Leadership – Learn to operate and cooperate as a team of responsible service leaders


By 2022, ELA will have deployed 275 urban youth leaders as counselors, mentors, tutors and ambassadors of the gospel.
