Lunch included. Donation requested to reduce costs.
Please arrive by 9:30 to sign in and get settled. 

What does it take to be a “FAP” (Friendly Adult Presence) at a Quaker teen gathering? What other roles can adults play to support positive youth development in a Friendly way? How can adults support each other to be allies to young people?

Who should come?
All who are interested, curious, scared, or excited: You!

This workshop will include resources on being an ally to youth; specific discussion about serving as a “FAP”; worship-sharing about experiences, hopes, fears, and wonderings; games (because everyone needs to PLAY!); and activities to explore scenarios and develop skills.
