During the 2017-18 program year, we offered a Small Group Ministry program to Youth in grades 6-12. This program fostered deeper awareness of UU values, while encouraging youth to explore their own ideas about some big theological and spiritual concepts. As part of this exploration, youth were expected to commit to regular attendance and maximum participation during the program year (September to May), and they were supported in their endeavors by a fanstastic team of Youth Leaders and Mentors.
The Youth Group is currently on a break for the Summer – special events may occur – if you would like to be added to the Youth Group email list, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and indicate your interest. We look forward to hearing from you!
Youth Cons at the Mountain – A Youth CONference is a gathering of Unitarian Universalist youth and advisers from congregations all over the southeast (and sometimes beyond!) for a weekend program filled with a variety of workshops, activities, good food, a safe environment and warm, cozy cabins. Youth participate in all the activities, share with new friends in small get-to-know-you groups, bond during free time, contribute to times of fun and reflection and grow spiritually through worship.
Dates have not been set yet for 2018. For more information, visit The Mountain’s Youth Con page.
