Join the UUA, UU College of Social Justice and other high school age youth for a 4-day experiential workshop to deepen our justice work as young UU's. Our time together will be spent two fold: the first will be to get out and about in Pittsburgh - learning about it's social movement landscape, the second will be exploring themes of change, resilience and organizing through creative arts and practices. We'll leave with new spiritual practices, new collaborators and hope about what we can accomplish together.
Registration costs for this immersion experience are fully funded by UUCSJ. In addition, we have funds allocated to reimburse travel expenses. Participants will be "living" at the church, where we will sleep and cook meals together. Transportation to community partner sites will be via car.
Registration is limited to 20 youth entering grades 9-12 in the fall of 2022, or the homeschool equivalent.
