What is the Christian Leadership Conference (CLC)?

For over 40 years CLC programs across the country have trained full and part time YMCA staff and volunteers to focus on putting Christian character and principles into practice. With an emphasis on the “C”, this one-of-a-kind conference is an opportunity to discuss faith issues and their relevance to your private life as well as your work life at the Y. Join us for an exciting, fun weekend full of new ideas, shared wisdom, fellowship, worship, prayer, encouragement, singing, and inspiration!
