We endeavor to share with one another and build relationships across ages. Together, we explore meaningful questions, learning and growing as people and as Unitarian Universalists. We engage in social action on issues that are important to us. We plan and participate in unique and special worship. And we always have fun!

Youth Group is a program of the Religious Education Program of USNF.  It is guided by part-time Youth Director and the Youth Adult Committee (YAC) which represents the entire group in decision-making and leads by example. The YAC is a dynamic team of elected youth, along with two adult advisors and the youth director. Six dedicated volunteer advisors, adult members of the congregation, support YG through their presence at meetings and events.

Every few years, the Youth Group has the opportunity to travel to Transylvania to learn about the history of Unitarianism and meet our partner church community. In the summer of 2019, 7 youth took this pilgrimage and here are some of their reflections on the experience: Transylvania Trip Youth Sermons
