Collaboratives make us a dynamic, “community organized” yearly meeting, by providing a vessel to hold Friends with similar ideas and leadings, and help launch projects and activities which grow out of those shared callings. They provide cross-pollination for the specific interests, enthusiasms, and bonds of individual Friends within PYM. Using collaboratives, Friends will join with other Friends to share their passions and reach critical mass and connection.
Examples of possible collaboratives include Undoing Racism, Quaker Parents, Friendly Crafters, and Ecstatic Dance.
Collaboratives are in the care of the Quaker Life Council and the primary staff contact is the Associate Secretary for Program & Religious Life.
