Young Adult Friends

The Young Adult Friends (YAF) group is the bridge between Junior Friends and participation in the life of the wider meeting. We range in age from 18 to 35, and our mission is simple: strengthen the bonds between Quakers young and old! We carry out this mission by joining both Junior Friends and plenary sessions, by passing on our rite-of-passage traditions, by spending time in fellowship with our peers, and serving as patterns and examples to younger as well as older Friends.

Plans for this year include the annual Capture the Flag game, mentoring Junior Friends through the Respectful Relationships talk, and of course the Saturday night dance party, and the ever-tasty Feast of Love. In between we generally hang out together in our own hall dorms, often talking and playing games long into the night.

If you’re interested in being part of the Young Adult Friends group, please indicate so on your registration forms, so we know how many to expect. If you have any questions whatsoever, please contact Maya Whitley at: yafcontact@npym.org. Maya Whitley <msbluesky@icloud.com>,
