Senior High Youth Group
The Mission of the Senior High Youth Program is to create a safe, trusting, and open-minded setting where youth feel a sense of ownership and freedom to express themselves. These programs will foster community among youth and between youth and the Society as a whole.
Youth Programs provide opportunities to learn and apply Unitarian Universalist values, explore life issues, prepare youth to be responsible members of the Society, develop self-esteem and self-respect, learn about other religions, demonstrate social responsibility, explore one’s own spirituality, and have fun.
Groups meet Sunday mornings from 10:30 – 11:45 during the regular church year.
