The day that I got the call saying that I was selected to serve on Youth Caucus staff was the day that my life changed forever. I never thought that I was qualified enough to be on youth caucus staff, but because I clicked that submit button I have been able to change my life and others’ through serving as Youth Caucus Dean.
I wholeheartedly believe that Youth Caucus staff is one of the most transformative experiences for Unitarian Universalist youth. I would bet that every youth who serves on Youth Caucus staff has finished their term a different person.Not only is serving on staff incredible for developing your faith and connection with Unitarian Universalism but it is also a way to make connections with fellow UUs from all over the country. I’ve met some of my best friends from serving on Youth Caucus staff and the connection that you make with your fellow staff members is simply incredible. Being on Youth Caucus staff is a lot more than being able to go to General Assembly for free. It is seeing a smile on somebody’s face when your workshop helps them make a friend. It is helping to empower fellow youth to go up to the microphone in Plenary Hall and give their opinion. It is helping youth grow spiritually through worship. It is seeing the months of work you put into planning transform people’s lives. To be on Youth Caucus staff means to be a catalyst for change and whether you are called to make change through worship, chaplaincy, connecting youth to business or connecting youth to one another I encourage you to apply for Youth Caucus staff. Don’t be afraid to send in your application. And remember the deadline is December 1st, so apply today to transform our faith!
