Neighboring Faiths: Grade 7, Brooks Room
This program gives our First Parish 7th Graders exposure to many different faith traditions. Through on-site discussions and off-site visitations, 7th Graders develop an appreciation for other religions while also growing a deeper understanding of our own Unitarian Universalist traditions.

UU Explorers: Grade 8 (Fall), Chapel
Following the Neighboring Faiths experience the previous year, our 8th Graders explore their UU identities. This offering includes field trips to other Unitarian Universalist congregations, spiritual practices and deep conversations about the science and the power of spirituality. In order to enroll in 8th Grade OWL (our comprehensive sexuality program offered January-April, 2020), it is required to participate in UU Explorers. We implemented this new policy in order to help the group bond and build on UU values for the OWL program.
