Ensemble – Young Adults at the National Conference

Ensemble is the virtual counterpart to Chorus, the annual national conference for Unitarian Universalist young adults (ages 18-35). 

Register for Ensemble to gain access to all offerings of the CUC National Conference, plus special activities just for the YA community. There will also be opportunities to welcome in older youth who are joining the YA community through bridging events. 

Our goals are for Ensemble this year to be a connective and emergent space: to prioritize connecting with each other, and to allow for the space to adapt to the needs of those who are present, at the moment. 

Come get your cup filled by community! 

 Dates:  May 13 – 16, 2021
