Youth Group Visits
Is your youth group or Coming of Age class traveling to Boston this year? Please consider visiting the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) while you are here!
Meet with Youth and Young Adult Ministries Staff
Staff members of the UUA Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministries are available for constituent meetings to discuss how we can strengthen and deepen our ministry and our faith community together and for you to share your thoughts and hopes with UUA Staff. We would like to hear what your youth group and congregation are doing! What’s working? How can Unitarian Universalism grow more vibrant, inclusive, meaningful, and powerful? What are your hopes and vision for Unitarian Universalism?
If your group is interested in this sort of conversation, please email youth @ uua.org or call (617) 948-4350 to schedule your visit. The Youth and Young Adult Ministries staff are available for this during most normal business hours. So that we can determine which staff member is best suited to meet with you, please indicate what you would like to discuss and send any questions you have in advance if possible.
