What is WYLE?
The theme for the Western State Multicultural Youth Leadership Event (WYLE) is also “Dream Big!” Within the framework of the story of Joseph (Genesis 37-50) youth will discover this complex character, who was brought out of the isolation of the pit and ultimately propelled to a leadership position in Egypt that not only saved his family but an entire nation. Joseph's dreams and his interpretation of dreams led him to a life and faith that was beyond his imagination. Together, with Christ our savior, we will teach youth of color to look beyond external circumstances and discover the “Dream” within.
