Youth at GA

The GA Youth Experience

The GA Youth Experience

June 16th, 2020: Updated information on a scaled-back youth program is now available on the GA Youth Programs page.

May 2020: General Assembly 2020 is all virtual this year! Youth do not need a sponsor to attend GA virtually, your parent/legal guardian is ultimately responsible for your supervision and wellbeing while attending GA. 

 

Youth Registration

Youth registration for GA is a two-part process: Complete the Youth Registration Form AND submit the GA Youth Participation Form.

Financial Assistance

This year it's even easier and more economically accessible than ever for youth and young adults at attend the Virtual General Assembly by applying for grants and scholarships.

GA Youth Programs

Just like every GA, this year's GA Youth programming still includes worships and fun get-togethers, as well as meetings to support delegates who are youth and to understand General Sessions.

Creating Community at GA

With a virtual event, building community is even more important. We're intentionally focusing on creating events designed to build a strong community for General Assembly (GA) participants where each person knows they can bring their whole selves (all their identities) to GA and be welcome, and that they can support each other and count on each other to get the most out of the experience.

Check Lists

Sure, you don't have to pack, but you still need to prep. What should you have ready before you attend your first Virtual GA event?

Info for Sponsors

This year's GA is virtual, which means no exhausting travel, no pricey hotel stays, no cold-pizza-for-breakfast-again, and NO ADULT SPONSORS NEEDED! Your parent/legal guardian is responsible for your supervision, health and well-being, just like always.
