The Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministries offers a variety of grants and program support for local congregations and groups. We are always seeking to fund innovative, accountable, and sustainable campus ministry and young adult programs around the continent. The following are currently available from the Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministries:
Young Adult Ministry Project Grants are used to support local projects that offer Unitarian Universalist young adults (ages 18-35, inclusive) opportunities to grow in faith, deepen in spirit, pursue their own initiatives for leading our faith, and engage in service and justice work. Grants are available to support a diversity of programs in congregations and beyond. Three priority application deadlines per year. Project grants typically range from $200 - $2,000.
