Pastoral Care with Youth (pdf)
NNED Seal of Approval Manual
Are you thinking about hosting a Youth Conference in your congregation? We can help!
The Northern New England District has created a guide for congregations to use when sponsoring programming for youth. NNED established guidelines with the goal of creating safe and nurturing environments at any youth event taking place within the Northern New England District. We encourage all congregations to consider such guidelines when sponsoring youth activities. Doing so establishes certain standards will be met in planning and overseeing the event.
The Seal of Approval (SOA) is granted by the Multigenerational Ministry Director to a limited number of specific youth events or conferences. Planners and organizers of these events have pledged to abide by the NNED guidelines. The SOA includes access to resources that assist groups in planning for a successful event. Attentive planning will help support an inclusive community and conference culture which reflects UU principles and provides opportunity for growth in areas of worship, youth-adult relations, community building, social action, learning and leadership.
