What youth have said about CanUUdle – our annual national youth con:
Advice from youth leaders about attending your first CanUUdle Youth Con:
“I was super nervous going to my first one but that didn’t last long. Everyone is so kind, warm and welcoming. You meet some of the most incredible people and form such strong bonds with others all around Canada. Some of whom become the most important people in your life.”
“For me going to CanUUdle was like entering a new world! At the time I was used to high school where everyone split into groups and didn’t really connect with each other. Imagine my surprise to see everyone sharing stories and helping each other. To me CanUUdle is a utopia of friendship and love and it changed my life for the better, helping me break out of my shell and becoming who I am today. I will never forget the older youth who helped my on my journey. So I say to you nUUbies don’t sweat it, there’s something for everyone here no matter how big or how small – there’s always something.”
“It’s not as scary as you think, but it’s still nerve-racking as meeting many new people is. But it is all worth it when you are missing your CanUUdle BFF’s a week later. CanUUdle is a great community experience that really broadens your views on life, UU youth and Unitarianism. Some advice: sleep the first night because you won’t be sleeping too much the other two nights!!”
