July 23-27, 2017
Yearly Meeting. Youth Yearly Meeting (YYM) is designed as a leadership training conference for students involved in the Friends Church. Our focus is to learn about and experience Quaker business, listening as a community to Jesus Christ, and participate with the adult Yearly Meeting. The students will meet to worship and practice Quaker business under the leadership of their peers, who fill the roles of YYM officers, and with the guidance of encouraging adults. A service project and a trip to Tilikum where students will be using the challenge course to learn about discernment in Quaker business meetings and in real life will work together to create a well-rounded growth and leadership experience.
We invite all interested youth to attend and encourage churches to seriously consider sending at least one middle school and one senior high student.
Program cost for YYM is $150. In an effort to enhance community and streamline youth programming, Youth Yearly Meeting registration fee includes onsite lodging, all meals (Sunday dinner-Thursday breakfast), beach day and the regular program fee. A key part of the work done together by the youth is greatly enhanced with full and regular participation for the entire week.
