Luminary Leaders: Lighting A New Way

Get inspired. Get recognized. Lead.

What is a Luminary Leader?

The Luminary Leaders program is an opportunity for high school aged youth leaders to get more involved, network with one another, and be recognized for their skill and achievement.

Could You be a Luminary Leader?

Luminary Leaders are dedicated, inspiring and involved. They can be found in youth groups, congregations, districts and communities across the denomination.

How Do I Join?

Level 1: Provide your contact, demographic, and interest information to hear about open opportunities.


Level 2: Already applied for Level 1? Fill out your Experience Profile and Endorsements to be recognized for exceptional leadership. Receive a pin, certificate and a customized recommendation for a leadership position exclusively available for Luminary Leaders.

I'm an Adult; How Can I Support Youth Leaders I Know?

Encourage a youth leader in your life to join and write an endorsement for them.

I’m Out of High School; Can I Still Apply?

All high-school aged Unitarian Universalists may join. Recent bridgers (less than one year since transitioning into young adulthood) are also eligible for recognition.

I Have More Questions!

See our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for more information about the program.
