Junior Yearly Meeting (JYM)

JYM took place from Monday 2 to Friday 6 August 2021, and was for those aged 15 to 18. JYM explored the theme, 'For our comfort and discomfort: how can we use Quaker testimonies to live faithfully?', following the threads of anti-racism and climate justice.

JYM was a great week full of community activities with opportunities to explore new perspectives and ideas. It was a chance for young people to have fun and make new friends. There were also small groups with community activities and discussions.
