Visit our Frequently Asked Questions about Youth Caucus at General Assembly, including program descriptions for this year.
General Assembly (GA) is the annual meeting of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA). Its programming includes open business meetings in which delegates speak and vote (called Plenary), workshops that any registered attendee may attend, worship services scattered throughout the days and nights, a large exhibit hall with displays from congregations, departments of the UUA, and other Unitarian Universalist (UU) or UU-related organizations, and tons of other great events, meetings and fun programs! Thousands of UU children, youth and adults, gather at GA every year. It has a contingent of youth, but it is not a youth conference.
Youth Caucus refers to programming at General Assembly designed specifically for youth. Youth Caucus includes workshops, meetings to discuss GA business, networking and other social opportunities, and worship. Youth are also welcome and encouraged to take part in the wider GA programming, including plenary sessions, public witness and worship.
The purpose of Youth Caucus is to serve:
- Youth who want to grow as Unitarian Universalists through a variety of workshops and worship opportunities, and who want to network with the wider UU community.
- Youth, including youth delegates, who are interested in or committed to learning about and participating in plenary session and the business of GA.
All youth (grades 9-12 in the preceding school year or the equivalent for home-schooled youth) are welcome to participate in Youth Caucus. Youth registration is required for all General Assembly (GA) attendees aged 15-17. Eighteen year-olds are not required to register as Youth, but must do so in order to obtain the youth registration rate. Fourteen year-olds may register as youth if they will have completed 9th grade (or the equivalent for home schooled youth) before GA.
The Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministries has scholarships available for youth who are planning to attend GA.
