AdvisorCon2013: The Return of the MAYANs
August 2-3, 2013 marked an historic moment for Unitarian Universalist youth ministry leaders in the MidAmerica region
. After many months of hard work and dedication, the Mid America Youth Advisor Network, (MAYAN) was officially launched.
MAYAN is intended to provide youth advisors with a place to go for information, to ask questions and collectively share our ideas, wisdom and resources. As youth advisors, we are here because we share a passion for youth ministry, and while the work we do with youth is vital, it is also important to make time to honor ourselves and to grow spiritually. MAYAN creates a space for us to connect in meaningful ways and to nurture and support each other.
You can currently connect with MAYAN on Facebook and a MAYAN website is in process. You can also email the group moderator at midamericayouthadvisors [at] gmail [dot] com">midamericayouthadvisors [at] gmail [dot] com
MAYAN is here for all of us because of the hard work and perseverance of several veteran youth leaders. A debt of gratitude is owed to Heather Godbout, Kim Tilford and Bill Huber. Thank you for believing in MAYAN and thank you for caring enough about us as leaders and about the future of our youth to hold on to your vision, even in the dark.
