Youth Groups (Grades 6 – 12)

Both of our Youth Groups are led by Katie Byron, Youth Coordinator. Katie can be reached at yc@uusharon.org.

Junior Youth Fellowship Group (JYFG) for grades 6-8 meets once a month for a variety of activities that include  conversations, games, art projects, questions, caring, and lots of laughter.  

Senior Youth Group (SYG) for grades 9-12 is our youth empowerment, leadership skill building, open and safe space for older youth to connect with each other, the congregation, and our larger communities. Logistical support and program coordination is provided by our Youth Coordinator, Katie Byron, and a team of volunteer adult advisors.

SYG is structured with weekly meetings on Sundays from 5-7pm and is open to all 9th-12th grade youth including friends and youth outside of the church congregation. Regular meetings are a time and space during the week set aside to bond with peers, share joys and concerns, play games, and plan events and projects. Activities and program elements are selected by youth and have traditionally focused on service projects, social justice, fun and fellowship.
