The Dawning Future—Youth and Young Adult Subsidy


This subsidy’s goal is to help youth and young adults 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 is an important way for them to build connections within their larger communities and to find space for their spiritual enrichment and growth. This is especially true for those who are geographically isolated.


To be eligible, you must be a youth (14–20) or a young adult (18–35) who is active in a congregation or a regional, national, or continental UU community.


This subsidy can be applied for year-round, and applicants will be chosen on a first-come, first-served basis for each event (after other criteria have been considered).

Please note: subsidy applications must be received at least three weeks prior to the event to be considered.
