Please note: the YAC conference has been postponed until June 12-19, 2021.
The Young Adults Conference is an intentional community of creative and dynamic people in our first decades of adult independence, committed to learning, growing, and celebrating together. We invite you to join us this year as we explore Power & Presence. We’ll recharge our emotional and spiritual batteries and learn ways to take better care of ourselves (and each other) through self-care workshops, games, discussion, music, crafts, meditation, yoga, and chapel services. Taking care of ourselves and each other also helps sustain the strength we need to fight larger battles. How can we speak truth to power and use privilege to fight systemic inequalities such as racism, misogyny, homophobia, transphobia, classism, and ableism? How can we keep hope and courage alive at a time when it would be easy to feel powerless? We’ll also explore the power of community and how to address obstacles that might make it hard to connect at times. Many of us are busy in our mainland lives, juggling work and family and other commitments, and we come to Star Island as a place to make new friends and reconnect with old friends. How can we be more present, mindful, and show up for each other in an authentic way? We can’t promise to have all the answers, but we’re dedicated to building a welcoming community that supports each other, has a lot of fun, and helps us grow and reflect together. We hope you’ll join us!
