Justice & Service

All our youth programming includes chances to explore and celebrate our various identities, learn about issues of injustice and oppression, and do service. These particular opportunities are more focused on these aspects of youth ministry.

Racial Justice Weekends

These are weekends supported by Regional Staff introducing youth to issues of identity and oppression. Race is a central focus although other issues of identities are also explored. You can find these listed on the Youth Conferences page.
