ALICT is usually composed of 26-27 students from 24 or more different nations. Living, working, worshiping and studying together they become a family and challenge each other as much as they bless and encourage. As they participate in the intensive curriculum, these students are given a snap-shot of eternity, uniting in their diversity to lay down their lives, titles, position and rights in service to Jesus Christ. The intent is to empower young Christian leaders to be relevant agents of change, to commit to a lifestyle of learning, creating key relationships & partnerships, while training them to design and execute programs and projects towards change. Students are coached to bring new and innovative insight, knowledge and thinking to this process.
Assessment during ALICT:
Designed as part of the learning experience, there are various assessments such as Pre-course assignment, assignments, peer evaluation, staff evaluation and the final exam that each participant will have to complete prior and during the training. The aim is to evaluate the extent to which participants can internalize and contextualize the learning, while others will focus on their personal and leadership skills development. In order to graduate, participants have to submit on time their completed assignments, a written exam and to achieve an average mark of 50%.

ALICT is a like a garage where people come to be serviced. By the time you leave the garage, you can’t recognize yourself because of the changes that have taken place in you, both inside and outside. ALICT is a tool in God’s hand to shape the destiny of individuals and nations.
