Youth in grades 7 through 12 typically begin their Sunday mornings in the sanctuary with the whole congregation for the first portion of service. After the Story for All Ages, they are invited to go downstairs to participate in Youth Group. This group is led by volunteer advisors.
The Youth Group focuses primarily on community building, opportunities for community service, and exploring their identity as young UUs.
In addition to Youth Group, students in grades 7 through 9 are invited to participate in a 3-year rotation of special programs, one of which is offered each year. This includes the Our Whole Lives sexuality education program, the “Neighboring Faiths” world religions curriculum, and the “Coming of Age” curriculum that focuses on personal faith formation.
