What does our history mean for us today?
Lancaster Meeting Youth and PYM Youth Programs are collaborating for a weekend trip/retreat in Washington, D.C. to explore this query in community together!
About the trip:
The weekend program will include visits to DC museums (possibilities include The National Museum of the American Indian and the The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum), processing of those experiences and worship sharing planned by PYM Youth Programs staff, and a program by Friends Committee on National Legislation for the youth.
Also: playing and eating and having fun together!
Travel will be by Amtrak train as a group, leaving Philadelphia on Friday after school (5:00pm) and returning on Sunday afternoon at 5:00pm.
Housing on Friday and Saturday nights is atFriends Place on Capitol Hill (formerly William Penn House).
Meals will be a combination of simple meals made at Friends Place and eating out -- all covered by the registration fee.
The cost of the trip is $200/person, and there is PYM scholarship funding for high school youth and cost should not keep anyone away -- see registration form for more information. Consider asking your local meeting for support to attend!
Adults on the trip include PYM staff Clare Chalkley, the Young Friends Facilitator (high school), and Kristin Simmons who is the new Youth Engagement Coordinator and has been the Middle School Friends program co-Facilitator. They are joined by four adult volunteers who we call "Friendly Presences." All the adults have their child safety background clearances.
Please register by January 15!
