Teen Program Adult Committee Epistle to College Park Quarterly Meeting

Dear College Park Friends,

A few years ago, the adults of the Teen Program Committee began a practice of meeting in person about two months prior to the upcoming quarterly meeting for full day of worship, worship sharing, visioning, and program planning. To our knowledge, the adults of the committee did not meet separately from the teens in the past. We made the decision to try doing so, although at first some of us wondered if it would be seen as exclusionary or adultist, or if it would detract from the goal of a youth-centered program. On the contrary, we have found that our adult gatherings allow us to create a needed community spirit among us, allowing us to come better prepared when we meet jointly with the teen leaders to support them to create their program. We have heard of times in the past when much of the work of this committee seemed to fall on one person; now it is much more shared. We have also increased the number of Friendly Adult Presences at each gathering, wanting both to give more support to FAPs in their work with the teens, as well as to offer opportunities for more adults to experience the joys of our teen program.
