9th Grade: Coming of Age

As youth prepare to leave childhood, we seek to honor this transition through the Coming of Age program. Youth will engage in social action projects, explore theology, spirituality and history through discussion, drama, music, writing and art. This program will help youth to define their beliefs and put their faith into action.

From September through November, the goals are for the youth to become familiar with Unitarian Universalist history and heritage and to make that history and heritage come alive in today’s world and in the lives of the participants: for them to understand our UU Principles intellectually and spiritually by putting the Principles to work in their lives, the congregation, and the community, and for them to claim and grow their UU identity. Then from December through May, after 14 or 15 years of watching, learning and living, our 9th graders have an intensive four months in which to bring their spiritual and religious life experience to the conscious level.
