A place to Connect, Grow, and Serve
The Youth Program's goal within our religious community is to:
This group is run by youth with the assistance and support of several adult advisors. Youth Group activities come in all shapes and sizes -- weekend retreats, social outings, hikes, volleyball, "movies with a messge," and fund raisers. Youth Group plans and presents Youth Sunday, an annual All Church Sunday with a theme of significance to the young people themselves. All activities involve adult advisors and often parent volunteers. Youth Group convenes during or after the 11:15 service each Sunday.
Overseeing and coordinating all program activities for grades 9 through 12, this committee includes representatives from the Youth Group. It communicates with all high school students of the congregation through a newsletter and other mailings, and arranges intergenerational outings, including an annual ski trip.
In the spring, the RE Youth Group forms a class for high school juniors and graduating seniors to discuss fundamental religious questions and the UU faith with the UUCA ministers and others. The class also organizes a field trip to Boston to visit historical UU churches, the Unitarian Universalist Association, and other sites. Please note that the structure of this class may also change from year to year, so check with the RE office for details.
