The World Youth Alliance believes that the first step in building a culture that affirms the dignity of the human person is to help our generation understand and articulate the meaning of human dignity. For this reason, training young people is our top priority.

The Certified Training Program (CTP) was developed to offer in-depth training to young leaders. The program requires an intensive comittment on the part of the member. Successful completion of the training is a prerequisite for international internships and United Nations conference participation. Certified members also expand the impact and work of the World Youth Alliance by training other young people in the core ideas of the World Youth Alliance.

The training covers four major sections:
1. Philosophy of the human person
2. International documents and institutions
3. Key issues at the international level (global health, development, Millennium Development Goals)
4. Movements and individuals who have shaped history
