There will be a gathering, hosted by the Lifespan Faith Engagement office, after Synergy, for bridgers to be honored by the Youth and Emerging Adult Community. Contact for more information.

Who's a "Bridger"?

Overall, it’s someone who’s transitioning to young adulthood, however that means for the individual. Often that’s meant someone at the end of 12th grade or the homeschool equivalent. But for other folks, other milestones (starting a job, leaving a home community) might be more relevant. We trust you to name and claim this moment of transition.

Because we recognize that young people have a different experience with virtual gatherings and thus this year's bridgers may not be present at the broadcast of Synergy or may prefer an in-person bridging experience, we are inviting anyone who bridges in 2024 to also join us in Baltimore 2025, on the Synergy stage, to be honored and welcomed into the YA community.

May the gathered community at this year's virtual General Assembly honor this rich and complicated moment, and in turn, commit and re-commit to creating a more multigenerational Unitarian Universalism.
