Sprints allow our community to respond to leadings in the moment. They provide agility in addressing a specific need as soon as it arises and helps to get the job done quickly. They last no longer than one to six months; the shorter the better. This time frame allows Friends to jump on board for a project, participate in something meaningful to them, and then move on without extended commitment.

Examples of sprints might include organizing an event like a weekend retreat or a social action/witness; meeting intervisitation or other gatherings; or developing a document or set of resources for Friends on a particular topic.

Sprints must be in the care of another structure or substructure in order to be formed. There is not a staff contact for sprints.
