About Us

Young Unitarian Universalist Project YUUP a fledgling network for UU youth & bridgers  to forge connections and support each other

YUUP is...

Run by youth, for youth with adult support and sponsored by the Unitarian Universalist Association.

For youth ages 14-18 years old and/or in grades 9th through 12th or the homeschooled equivalent. Also, folks transitioning to young adulthood during the pandemic are connecting with each other in the network in order to continue community building after they leave the network.

A Big Thanks

Thank you to the many adults who support this project. From UUA Staff who support the logistics side and help us stay within the UUA's youth safety guidelines to the Support Adults within the network who attend our events and groups as observers to the many religious professionals and lay leaders who provide mentorship, guidance and inspiration when we need it - with your support we're creating a thriving network for young Unitarian Universalists to connect with each other and our faith.
