At Godstock, all high school youth who are active members of an ELCA congregation have the opportunity to be elected to the Synod Youth Board. The Board is comprised of youth who are driven to be leaders and ministers to their peers. Both Godstock and Christ Jam are completely planned and and put on by youth!

Friday night of Godstock with with gather for Caucuses--a time where peers nominate and elect each other for positions on the SYB. Lead by current representatives, any youth can nominate another to be on the Board. Then, each church will have two votes to choose their representatives. Sound confusing? Don't worry; we'll walk you through it! 

Each of the seven conferences (see map above to find yours) has the following representatives: 2 two-year youth representatives, 1 one-year youth alternative representative, 1 one-year adult representative, and 1 one-year adult alternative representatvie. That's 3 youth and 2 adults at any time!

In addition to conference representatives, there is also the Executive Board, which are youth who apply and are accepted for the following positions, all of which are two-year: Secretary, Definitely-Abled, Multi-Cultural, and Vice President (who becomes President in his/her second year).
