Webinars for Youth Ministry

Unitarian Universalists believe ministering to and with youth is a vital role adults play in our movement. Adults ministering to and with youth can always be growing and building skills, and we're here to support you through online learning opportunities. Join us in expanding your knowledge base and skill set by registering for our upcoming webinars. Learn from home or with other people ministering to and with youth in your congregation. Not all live webinars are archived, so don’t miss your opportunity to attend.
