Dear Possible Junior Yearly Meeting Attenders,
We are so excited for this summer’s Junior Yearly Meeting 2012, and are encouraging all those who are interested to come! There is a general age limitation, but attendance is based upon maturity level and self-readiness. So don’t hesitate to ask your parents, anyone on the JYM planning committee, or other Quakers about registering. This summer, Pacific Yearly Meeting is taking place at Walker Creek in Petaluma from August 13-18th, so mark your calendars! JYM is an opportunity to build long-lasting friendships with other teens as well as adults and FAPs (Friendly Adult Presences). You should not feel held back from attending if parental attendance and or money are problems. There are many scholarships available, so don’t hesitate to ask for help from your monthly meeting and the yearly meeting. If your parents are not planning on attending, don’t count yourself out. There are plenty of Quakers who would be happy to sponsor you!
Junior Yearly Meeting is a self-lead community where we decide our own values and expectations; these accommodate both the parent’s concerns, as well was what we expect from one another. The week is filled with swimming, playing late-night ultimate Frisbee, worship sharing, taking part in a service project, and a huge dance party on the last night! All of the teens are welcoming towards new JYMers would love to see you there this summer!
