Supporting the Dawning Future – Youth and Young Adult Subsidy

Purpose:

This subsidy’s goal is to help make it easier for youth (14-20) and young adults (18-35) to attend regional, national and continental conferences and leadership development opportunities. The CUC recognizes that Youth and Young Adults are our dawning future, and that attending these events, especially for individuals who are isolated geographically, is an important way for our youth and young adults to build connections within their larger communities and to find space for their own spiritual enrichment and growth.

Criteria:

Must be a youth (14-20) or a young adult (18-35) who is active in a congregation or regional, national or continental UU community.

Process:

This subsidy can be applied for year round and applicants will be chosen on a first come, first serve basis per event (after other criteria has been considered). You can read more details about the subsidy and complete the application form here.
Please note: subsidy applications must be received at least 3 weeks prior to the events to be considered.
