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! Invite a Friend!

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.

Please register by 5 days ahead (by 4/1 for Sacramento or 4/29 for Santa Monica) by contacting Alyssa Nelson, PYM Youth Program Coordinator: pym [dot] youthcoordinator [at] gmail [dot] com / (530) 563-6369.

This workshop occurs only once a year in both Southern and Northern California, so don’t be bashful! Friends from all Meetings and Worship Groups are welcome.
