UUCA Youth Group

Youth - Grades 9 - 12

The Youth Program's goal within our religious community is to:

  • Provide a bridge between childhood and adulthood;
  • Facilitate discovery and appreciation of personal gifts and talents, a joy of living and a belief in life's potential in a setting which accepts diversity and exploration
  • Identify what participants, as adults, will need from a church and why they would choose to be a part of one.

The Youth 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.

Youth-Adult Committee

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.

Discussion Group

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. Please note that the structure of this class may also change from year to year, so check with the RE office for details.
