See You at the Pole

“WHOLEHEARTED” (from Jeremiah 29:13) is the theme for See You at the Pole™ 2023, which is all about students praying at their schools. The event is planned for Wednesday, September 27, at schools around the world. 

The event is more than just one day of prayer. With the continuing challenge of Covid-19 affecting schedules and access at participating schools, students are challenged to find creative ways, places, and times to pray throughout the Global Week of Student Prayer—September 24-30.

Then, on Wednesday, September 27, students are encouraged to pray at a school flagpole or other community location. This means that all around the world in every time zone, for 24 hours, students will be praying for their school, friends, families, churches, and communities.

This is the 33rd year for See You at the Pole™, a student-initiated and student-led event that started in Burleson, Texas, in 1990. SYATP brings students together to intercede for their leaders, schools, and families, asking God to bring moral and spiritual awakening to their campuses and countries.

The San Diego-based National Network of Youth Ministries coordinates SYATP promotion. Doug Clark, national field director of the Network, noted: “See You at the Pole™ is a ‘moment.’ We hope adults and students will consider turning that moment into a movement by praying every day. This year, with the continued challenge of disruptions that have affected the US and every country, we need to ask God to pour out His Spirit on us more than ever. The heart of SYATP is extraordinary prayer.”

SYATP is partnering with Claim Your Campus ( to encourage students to daily prayer at their schools. CYC currently supports students praying daily on schools across the nation.

*Gilead Christian School students and parents are invited to join us for See You At the Pole, at their perspective campus on September 27th at 7:45 AM.*
