Does the term chaplain include the youth and adults that the UUA has trained to be youth chaplains?

Hi Betty Jeanne! Great question. My understanding is that they are specifically looking for those who have served professionally in institutional settings such as hospitals, prisons, the military and schools. The proposed title is "UU Chaplains in Institutional Settings: Theology and Practice." I don't know where that leaves folks who serve as chaplains at UU events, but you can contact Karen Hutt to find out more if you're interested!
