Middle and high school students meet beginning in October to share social activities and take part in social justice and service work. The youth group is facilitated by the Director of Family Ministries and volunteers who are members of the congregation.
Coming of Age:
Coming of Age is our term to describe the transition from adolescence to adulthood. High school age youth are invited to participate in this yearlong program. Like other youth preparing for Confirmation or Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, teens will show the progress of their knowledge and spiritual development.
Our Whole Lives (OWL)
The guiding principle of the OWL program is that honest, accurate information prepares our children to become emotionally healthy, responsible adults and to make better decisions about their sexual behavior. OWL is an interactive, age-appropriate curricula that engages participants, builds self-acceptance and self-esteem and fosters healthy relationships. OWL strives to be unbiased and teaches about heterosexual, bisexual, homosexual, and transgender sexual health. Here is a link to understand more about the program: UUA, Our Whole Lives.
