    Take Part (14-30)

    There are a number of ways that you can take part and connect to both Quaker and other opportunities:

    • How to volunteer for events for children and young people (16+)
    • Research opportunities to be involved in decisions that affect you and the organization you are part of (14-21)
    • Getting involved in activism
    • Work from the Be the Change resource (11-18) through to study bursaries and events and voluntary opportunities (for young adults)

    Facilitation and Leadership (16-21)

    Takes place annually in autumn.

    The weekend is a dynamic combination of theory and opportunities to apply learning about Facilitation and Leadership using practical activities. There will be discussions, activities, group work, role-plays and video clips.

    “Probably the most useful weekend I have ever attended, it will be incredibly valuable in the outside world."


    Young Friends General Meeting (18-30)

    The national organization for Quakers aged 18–30. They hold in person gatherings and online events.
