The Lutheran Youth Organization (LYO) in of the North Carolina Synod is open to all youth in grades 6-12. Youth are members by virtue of being a member of any NC Synod ELCA congregation. Every year, Lutheran youth across North Carolina gather in February for an assembly. At LYO Assembly, youth spend time with each other in small groups, singing with the band and growing in faith.
The strength of LYO in North Carolina comes from the youth themselves. LYO is always youth-planned and youth-led. As adult leaders we work hard to create an environment that nurtures and grows faith and develops all youth as leaders.

LYO Participant schedule
It is the expectation of the NC Synod that beginning January 1, 2017, all adults bringing youth to any synodical event would have completed some form of child protection training and have a recent background check on file with their congregation (current within the last three years).
To facilitate this expectation, we have contracted with Safe Gatherings to provide both the training and background checks. Please plan to complete this training three weeks prior to any event. www.safegatherings.com (Contact Tammy@lutheranyouth.org if you have questions about your account. All congregations have an account provided by the synod. Training and background checks are paid by the individual or congregation.)
If your congregation uses another system for training and backgrounds, please use the form below for certification. Safe Gatherings is not the required system. It is one vehicle that we are recommending as simple, comprehensive, and online for easy access.
Registration is closed for this event.
