Trust In People

 

New research from the PEW Research Social and Demographic Trends report on Millennials in Adulthood deepens and adds context to the identity of Millennials as non-religiously affiliated, spiritually seeking people. The research reveals that Millennials prefer forming networks of trusted friends rather than placing their trust in institutions, are less trusting of people they don't know than are previous generations and increasingly don't believe or doubt the existence of a higher power.

One takeaway from this data is that organizations which emphasize multi-generational governance and practice, allowing Millennials a "seat at the table", can thrive. Learn how Unitarian Universalism and the Unitarian Universalist Association promotes youth and young adult empowerment and multigenerational governance with youth leadership opportunities and young adult leadership training, multigenerational congregations and worship.
