Viterbo Receives $134,570 Lilly Endowment High School Youth Theology Initiative Grant

Viterbo University has received a $134,570 grant to develop and establish a Franciscan Social Justice Youth Theology Institute. The grant is part of Lilly Endowment Inc.’s High School Youth Theology Institute initiative, which is designed to encourage young people to explore theological traditions, ask questions about the moral dimensions of contemporary issues, and examine how their faith calls them to lives of service.

Viterbo’s Franciscan Social Justice Youth Theology Institute will be a week-long immersive experience for high school students entering grades 10–12 that will include service, personal reflection, scripture lessons and discussion, and of course, fun. It is scheduled to begin in summer 2016.
