Homeward Bound: Our Incredible Journeys

YAC welcomes people in the first decades of adult independence. Home is where we grew up and grow, find comfort and shelter, prepare and unwind. Although the physical spaces change, we return home to find and be ourselves. Join us for “Homeward Bound” as we acknowledge our homes; discuss issues of seeking and protecting sanctuaries; and honor our spirits’ home, Star Island.

YAC welcomes children under the age of 6, however, there is no child specific programming offered

Returning to Star? Check out our Community Building Program!

We want our conferences to continue to grow, so we’re asking our Star Island family members to bring someone with you to Star this year. Here’s how it works:

1) Find that person (or more than one person) that you feel would be able to best contribute to the community on Star Island.Consider people in your extended family, congregation members, co-workers or other personal networks!

2) Nominate that person by filling out this form.

3) Star will cover 30% of the room and board for your new Shoaler, provided they attend the full duration of the conference!

4) We’ll also kick in $50 toward your room and board, provided you attend the full duration of the conference! (if you bring 4 or more new people, we’ll give you $125!)
