Frequently Asked Questions

The York Rite Leadership organization is a Center of Excellence that delivers executive-class leadership training and coaching to all York Rite leaders wherever dispersed. The current York Rite Leadership Training Program consists of three well-developed classes that are designed to give you the skills to be a better leader of yourself and others.

Any member of the Masonic family may participate. We do ask that the youth be mature. For guidance, a young gentleman or lady who is between 14 and 18 and has a mature outlook may be admitted. Admission is always at the discretion of the instructor.

The program consists of three (3) classes, which are titled 101, 201, and 401. Classes 101 and 201 are offered both online and in person. Class 401 is only offered in person. The classes are held at the Grand Encampment Department Conferences.

You will receive a certificate noting your completion of the program.

There is no cost for the class itself. If you are attending an in-person (ILT) class at a conference, there may be a fee required for the conference.

The first step is to apply for admission. After you have been approved for admission, you will begin to receive notifications of classes as registration opens.

Step 1.) Create an account on this website.

Step 2.) Register for the appropriate course, which is class 101 if you have not taken any classes before.

Step 3.) If you plan on taking the course in person, register for the Grand Encampment Department Conference where the course you signed up for is being held.

Step 4.) Email Program Executive Lane Pierce stating what you registered for.

The link to attend online training is sent the day before the training, after enrollments have closed.

A very detailed presentation. I took 7 pages of detailed notes provided by the presenters and because of the virtual environment I was able to screen shot and keep some of the graphs and examples for my notes... I will be able to use these new thought processes and ideas to help be a better leader...

I truly appreciate your presentation of the material provided. I think it is well laid out and makes good transitions from subject to subject. Facilitation was very strong and all the Presenters had a high level of understanding of the material which produced very good comprehension of those materials within the attendees.
