26th to 28th: Young Friends Conference

Young Friends conferences offer a sanctuary from the frenzied lives of the teens (high schoolers) who attend. The community has become an important stepping stone on the way to maturity and spiritual recognition. The drive for leadership that self-governance creates is of utmost importance to the community and its members. Exposure to this kind of responsibility is something that helps participants grow into more developed and more self-aware contributing members of society. The atmosphere created through many years of Young Friends’ strength and wisdom is a spiritually loving and welcoming home for the members of the community. It’s a place where teens have fun and where everyone is loved. When a Young Friend is at a conference, he or she is always being held in the Light. This empathetic love between peers is what initiates the celebration of community, that occurs at every conference. As participants hold hands without speaking, there is a deep connection. In the Young Friends community, participants learn to live the testimonies beyond memorizing them. There will be a Young Friends Conference the weekend of November 26 to 28, possibly in Richmond VA (COVID permitting). Here is the link for registration:
