Lift Every Voice, LEV, is a three-year initiative of the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina for youth and young adults ages 15-25 from across the Episcopal Church, Cape Town, and Botswana. This ministry is designed to build an understanding of social injustice that will help participating young people develop a vision and skills to lead their dioceses’ programming around race and inclusivity.

The Diocese of Atlanta Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministries will sponsor the participation of two adults, two young adults, and five youth. As far as youth and young adult participation, you must currently be in 10th grade through a senior in college to apply for LEV 2017. Adults interested in applying must attend the Dismantling Racism Training before the event. Youth and young adults can apply here.
