Our teen program strives to engage teens spiritually, empower them, and encourage authentic community. We want teens to learn how to make connections with one another, find the truest expression of themselves, and enjoy being young. Together we ask big questions, try out new spiritual practices, and engage in social action. If you are in 7th to 12th grade this year, join other youth of UU Marin and other north bay congregations for a life-changing experience!
Our next youth get-togethers in partnership with other UU congregations is in April in San Francisco,
Bridging – Moving On
The teen program follows our youth through their high school years. As they become adults and prepare to head out on their own, we honor them in a bridging ceremony. At the center of this rite of passage from youth to adults, each teen passes through a door painted by their peers. They leave behind other youth, and are welcomed by young adults in the congregation. Here they receive a rosebush from the community, a symbol of our hopes that their life ahead may be filled with the beauty they love to do, their roses. It also represents that we trust that they can handle the thorns along the way as they tend to the whole of their lives now, roots, shoots, leaves and all.
