The Lutheran Youth Organization, or LYO, is the high school youth leadership program for the Delaware-Maryland Synod.

Youth are organized into one of six teams to live into their God-given gifts and sharpen their skills for service in our synod, their own congregation, and the surrounding community. Each team is mentored by two to three gifted adults, and led by one primary young person selected by each team at the beginning of each year.
