High School Youth Group
Sunday Morning Youth Meetings
Youth meets on Sunday mornings to discuss issues of spiritual importance to today’s youth. With the support of the Youth Advisory Council (YAC), the High School youth of First Parish will also plan other gatherings in the spirit of fun and social action through out the year.
Youth Advisory Council (YAC)
YAC is a group of youth leaders and a few caring, connected adults who meet once a month to plan and coordinate First Parish’s youth programs with the Youth Program Director. YAC is made up of youth from each grade level. If you are interested in a fun leadership opportunity, then see the Youth Program Director or one of the Senior leaders for more information.
