Meet the Youth Deans for the UU-UNO’s Spring Seminar! Senior Youth Dean

Hey, my name is Caleb DiNino-Childers. I was born in New York, but have grown up in Seattle, Washington. I attend University Unitarian and am a senior this year. I’ve been playing Frisbee since elementary school and I love to draw. I work on staff for district Cons as well as my church’s SPAG Con (Social Political Activism Group). I am a member of my district’s Youth Empowerment Service Team, as well as the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) Luminary Leaders, and I’m an alumnus of the 2105 UUA Summer Seminary program. I am excited for this year’s Spring Seminar, not only because it will be my first time attending one, but this year’s theme of economic inequalities/wage gaps is also very important. It is a serious problem in America and all around the world because it is an issue that stems from several other inequalities within our culture, such as race, gender, or sexual orientation.

Junior Youth Dean

I am Martin Tomlinson from Kansas. I am very excited about being a Youth Dean at this year's Spring Seminar. Last year the seminar was an intensive 3 days with professionals passionate to teach about their subjects and youth who were dedicated to social justice. It made me become very interested in the mission of the UU-UNO and soon after I became a UU-UNO Youth Envoy for my church, All Souls Kansas City.  At the 2016 spring seminar, I am looking forward to learning about income inequality around the world and working with truly great people youth and adults alike. I often enjoy spending time doing UU activities.  At All Souls Kansas City I received the Courageous Love Award for community service and the Youth Achievement Award for Commitment to Social Justice, I recently became a Luminary Leader and Youth Chaplain. Last summer I had an unforgettable experience on a Unitarian Universalist College of Social Justice program, Activate Southwest Border.  My hobbies include reading, writing, and playing guitar and ukulele.
