HYPE was one of the greatest decisions of my life!  It helped to teach me some very valuable life skills and it introduced me to some really great friends of mine that I wouldn't have met without it.

What is HYPE?

High School Youth Pursuing Excellence (HYPE) is a leadership training group designed to challenge and guide the advanced students of CYT to be leaders inside and outside of CYT. Getting involved by serving the community around them, continuing to grow as an individual, and committing themselves to excellence in all they do are the core components of this CYT program.

My time in HYPE helped grow me tremendously in a lot of areas.  Specifically in my leadership, communication, and planning abilities.  It taught me hwo to work well with a team, as well as many other things.  HYPE provides accountability and a group of people who are about you and your success.  I'm so glad I was able to experience HYPE and I wouldn't trade my time there for the world!

HYPE was on of the main building blocks of my character.  It started me out on the path I am going.  It kept my focus on God and helped me grow as a person.  I met so many new people and worked hard to become a leader.  HYPE was more than just a leadership program though, it was a stepping stone to greater things.  I see HYPE as an important part of my life that I wouldn't change ever.
