Parents, please complete the online Child & Youth Safety Information Form if your child will be participating in Soulful Exploration at WUUC.
WUUC youth practice radical inclusivity among their peers, welcoming all who comes to participate. There are many opportunities for youth to be involved in all aspects of church life – as musicians, sound engineers, ushers, worship associates and on various task forces or committees of their interest. Junior and Senior Youth have the opportunity to participate in youth conferences with other UU youth in the area as well as engage in social justice work in the wider community.
Youth Groups serve our youth in middle and high school and focus on 8 strands of development: leadership, connection across ages, spiritual development, beloved community, justice making, pastoral care, faith exploration and identity formation. There is no registration fee to participate, but all youth’s parents must complete the safety information form online.
The Junior Youth (6th-8th grades)
The Senior Youth (9th-12th grades)
Sr. Youth meet weekly on Sunday evening for fellowship, worship, sharing, justice work and fun. This year our youth will be focusing on project-based, social justice learning. The group chooses a project around environmental justice, racial justice, lgbt equality, or some other relevant justice topic. Together, they formulate a project plan, learn about the political landscape surrounding their chosen justice issue, and complete the project by the end of the school year.
