SEYM’s Youth & Young Adult Coordinator position on pause

The Executive Committee has approved suspending the Youth & Young Adult Coordinator position from September 1st to December 31st — or until we resume holding in-person events. Being able to have youth and family gatherings and events in person is essential to this work and ministry; and while SEYM has offered several online youth program events, those have seen low attendance. Kody’s leading to serve as our YYAC for three years will not be affected by the suspension; he will finish out that time commitment when the position is resumed. He will continue to be available to the Youth Committee, who will be finding resources to help Meetings’ support and outreach to youth and families.

Meetings can contact the Youth Committee co-clerks Cece Yocum or Jennifer Mendoza for any support, resources, or questions.

Young Adults are organizing monthly online events; for more information, see our Online Events page, or contact the Susan Wade, Admin Secretary.
