JHYG (Junior High Youth Group)
For 6th, 7th and 8th Grades
Welcome to a year of discovery in JHYG!
The intention is to provide a space attractive to JHYG youth that encourages observations about cooperation, community, strategic problem solving, experiences of spirituality, the value of planetary resources, as well as many other large issues, not the least of which is, who am I in all of this. We work with the 6 Pillars of UU JHYG religious education. The six pillars are: community involvement, social action, worship, learning, leadership, and congregational interaction.
We invite youth to attend worship services with friends and family on most Sundays, unless they are in OWL or it is a scheduled Youth Group Sunday.
Our Junior High program occurs on 10 scheduled Sundays during the 2017-2018 Religious Education year:
Junior High Youth Group (JHYG)—Grades 6-7-8 groups can make friends in a safe spiritual community. They can deepen their UU identity at four district–wide weekend youth retreats. Regular attendance will deepen the mentoring friendships between the adult leaders and youth. Participation helps to build supportive connections as they navigate life passages.
