GA 2016 Worship Coordinators Rhea Brown-Bright and Colleen Lee

Apply to For Youth Caucus Staff! Deadline December 1st

What is Youth Caucus Staff?

The General Assembly (GA) Youth Caucus is led by a team of youth and adult volunteers who shape the programming that GA youth attendees experience and connect them to the larger experience of GA.

Youth Caucus staff are passionate, enthusiastic, creative youth and adults creating a welcoming, inclusive and exciting Youth Caucus at the 2017 General Assembly on June 21-25 in New Orleans, LA.

Dean of Youth Caucus Staff

Youth Caucus Deans are the leaders of the volunteer Youth Caucus Staff. They work with the Youth Caucus staff to fulfill the purpose of Youth Caucus, which is to deepen our collective Unitarian Universalist spirituality and help youth make an impact on the our association through General Assembly.

All expenses, including travel, meals, housing and registration at all meetings, including the two GAs during which they serve, are paid for by the Unitarian Universalist Association. 

The Deans choose and coordinate programming, select additional staff, facilitate meetings, collaborate with adult leaders across the Association and make Youth Caucus the best it can be. Youth Caucus is a great opportunity for youth from across the country to meet, learn, and have fun together.

The application process for this two-year position opens in July immediately following GA and the position is selected in August.
