Young Quakers Participation Day
2 December 2017, London
"The day made me feel encouraged to be an active member of the Quaker community to which I belong, and that all contributions, whether their giver is five or fifty, are treated with equal respect and consideration."
The day is being held alongside Meeting for Sufferings which decides the priorities and sets the direction of the Yearly Meeting. This will offer young people the chance to consider items that are on this agenda that are of relevance to young people.
"Being at the Participation Day made me feel a part of Quakerism and Britain Yearly Meeting."
Young people will have their lunch with the Meeting for Sufferings representative this is an opportunity to strengthen the relationship between adults and young people from the same Area Meeting. It's also chance for each of them to connect and find out about the Participation Day, Meeting for Sufferings and Yearly Meeting work.
Each Area Meeting can book up to two young people and two young adults to attend the day, the cost of travel and, where essential, accommodation will be covered from Britain Yearly Meeting funds. The day is for young people aged 14 – 21 years (born between 1.9.1996 and 31.8.2003, inclusive).
