What is YXL?

YXL stands for Youth eXcelling in Leadership. It is the youth leadership program of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA). YXL West is a weeklong summer conference in the mountains of Colorado. We are dedicated to preparing youth to be leaders for Christ – in the church, in their homes, in the workplace and around the world.
