RA2016 Youth and Young Adults by Shannon HarperWe invite youth and youth advisors from across the MidAmerica region to take part in "Finding our Partners: Faith in Action" Regional Assembly.

Our multigenerational goal is to make sure that youth, young adults, and adults have multiple opportunities to reflect, gain skills and resources, to help reframe your understanding of being an interfaith partner.

There will not be a separate youth track, but there is a youth orientation on Friday evening at the close of the opening service. Also, we will have a youth debrief on Saturday evening, after the closing service.

Many of our workshops will be of particular interest to youth and youth advisors, especially our workshop, ComUUnity @ Heart, which will include leaders from the Interfaith Youth Core. This workshop will explore capacity building to realize spirit filled, lifespan, caring, and sustainable models which put social justice at the center of congregational life. We will have youth and adult voices exploring the power of being a community of care, which embodies care for self, community, and the greater world. Learn about multigenerational success stories of UU congregations who seek to be a community of care through music/movement and message.

Please note: Youth MUST fill out and mail these forms:
