ACYTI Journals

The 2014 Augsburg College Youth Theology Institute (ACYTI) Journal has been published! This past summer's ACYTI was an intense week of friendship, classroom learning, worship, solitude, contemplation, discernment, and action on Augsburg's urban campus for high school students from around the country interested in theology. At the end of their week-long journey they reflect on what they've taken away from the week and write a paper, which Augsburg then revises and publishes. This year's theme was, "OMC! Christian Community in the Internet Age" and focused on the impact of technology on the Christian Community. Take some time and read what current high school students are learning from Augsburg's intellectual and diverse community experience!

Let Us Give Them Hope

Three years ago, I was a senior in a high school in Gaza, Palestine. My Father, who is a mechanic, could not afford to send me to college. I used to look at college students and wonder if one day I will end up in college or in a workshop like my father. Today, I am a senior at Augsburg College in Minneapolis, Minnesota majoring in computer science and double minoring in Math and MIS thanks to The Hope Fund nonprofit organization. Read more on their website:

The Hope Fund gave me that chance to change my life and the lives of those around me. Many Palestinians do not have that chance, so let us give them that chance! Let us empower them with education!
