High school is a time full of transitions and identity-building.  In terms of faith formation, this is when we encourage youth to put their faith into action.  Up until now – and culminating in a Coming of Age rite of passage – religious education has been geared toward helping young people explore and articulate their own beliefs.  Now, it is time to put those beliefs into practice…

Youth group programming is grounded in nurturing youth leadership.  UUSGS offers regular programming to/with youth, but the congregation also regularly solicits and supports programming ideas from the youth themselves, including: social justice activities (e.g., Pride, racial justice, care of first responders), participation in Sunday services, arts opportunities, and social events.

Youth are not only recipients of the congregation’s ministry, but rather are invited to be a powerful part of its expression to one another and to the wider community we serve.  The youth group at UUSGS is a source of energy, creativity and collaboration for the whole congregation.  For more information about the UUSGS Youth Group, please contact UUSGS’s Director of Family Ministry, Darcie Farber.
