Attending the annual General Assembly as a high school aged youth (grades 9-12 in the preceding school year, or the equivalent for home-schooled youth) is an incredible experience. Not only do you get to worship, witness, learn and connect in a multigenerational continental community, you can get to know hundreds of other youth and participate in making an impact on the Association through the democratic process.
Large spiritual communities like General Assembly can be powerful, life-changing, and deeply meaningful. These opportunities cannot happen, however, without the help of Sponsors.
