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.
