About Blue Boat
Blue Boat is hosted by the Office of Youth and Young Adult (YaYA) Ministries of the Unitarian Universalist Association. It is a blog for sharing stories and successes of ministry to Unitarian Universalist youth and young adults, as well as discussion on issues of social justice, dismantling white supremacy in American culture, and providing resources, information, guides and best practices for youth, young adult and on-campus groups and individuals as well as the advisors and staff who work with them. We post a wide range of content and the views expressed on this site do not necessarily represent those of the UUA, its staff or member congregations. We consider this blog a tool for opening dialog with our readers and are always looking for ways to better serve our constituents. Please contact us at yayadirector [at] uua [dot] org with your thoughts and suggestions or if you are interested in contributing a blog post.
The Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministries works to:
- Empower UU youth and young adults,
- Connect youth and young adult leaders to live fully into their faith;
- Equip congregations to grow vibrant Unitarian Universalist youth and young adult ministries; and
- Advocate for multigenerational, multicultural Unitarian Universalsit communities.
We provide resource materials, project grants, denominational advocacy, and leadership development to further those goals. For any questions, call (617) 948-4350 or email yayadirector [at] uua [dot] org.
