We are a collective of youth and young adults (YAYA) within the Southern California Nevada Conference of the United Church of Christ. Our collective is made up of two groups, the Young Adult Kouncil (YAK) and Youth Roundtable (YRT).
Our mission is to create consistent programming that centers community, equity, art and youth. Our programming revolves around building a community of compassion and care through camps, workshops, retreats for children, youth, young adults, and families. We are always growing into new avenues where our voices are needed.
We partner with and are supported by the Outdoor Ministries Team (OMT) and host seasonal year round programming at local churches or Pilgrim Pines Camp and Conference Center.
We believe in our power as youth and young adults and we are here to disrupt systems of oppression through our use of education, art, and community. We believe young people make change!
