Who Am I: Media, Technology, and Me
Do you have high school students in your congregation or synod who:
are concerned with global challenges such as soil depletion and food justice?
want to use their own gifts and talents to make a positive difference in the world?
wonder about how their faith fits with their interests in math or science?
are looking for a community that shares these concerns and interests?
These are the kinds of questions that they can explore through the Gustavus Academy for Faith, Science, and Ethics. The Academy Fellows Program provides opportunities for high school students to explore their beliefs and to discover how scientists and people of faith are working together to address some of the world's most pressing problems. As an Academy Fellow, they will join with other outstanding high school students to grow in knowledge, develop leadership skills, and clarify their sense of purpose.
As a pastor or ministry leader, we encourage you to identify and share with a high school students you would think would benefit from our program.
