The PYM Young Friends program provides a spiritual home for high-school-aged Quakers and their friends through explorations of community, spirituality, leadership and fun!
Young Friends incorporates many opportunities for spiritual growth and contemplation, focusing specifically on grounding in Quaker faith and practice. In this way, the Young Friends program keeps young people engaged in the Quaker faith, encouraging and supporting youth leadership with opportunities like: being the voice of the community as the clerk or assistant clerk of Young Friends, thinking well about care for individuals and the whole community as a member of the Nurturing Committee, and learning to find a voice and speak one’s truth as a young person in a faith community that values its youth. Young Friends is a community of play, connection, growth, laughter, work and love.
