YOUTH FORUM 2018!
What is Youth Forum?
Youth Forum is a unique event in the life of the United Church of Canada, engaging youth delegates in exploring United Church identity and connection and contributing their learning and perspectives to the work of the General Council in meaningful ways.
Who is it for? For youth ages 15-18 (by August 30, 2017).
Youth Forum Process: Manitou Conference Executive will select five interested and motivated youth to attend the National Youth Forum Winter Gathering at Five Oaks Centre in Paris, Ontario. Those youth delegates will then further select one full commissioner and one alternate to represent Manitou Conference at the 43nd General Council in Oshawa, ON. Youth Forum Commissioners will be employed throughout the summer by the General Council to consult with youth while completing a national pilgrimage; as commissioners, they are empowered to speak and vote at General Council, and so must be members of the United Church of Canada. Alternates will also attend the 43nd General Council.
How do I apply? Complete an application form available from your minister, youth minister or online here. Applications must be submitted to Manitou Conference BY NOVEMBER 10.
