New: Reflection on the process and decision not to play Cards Against Humanity at SLD Cons by Connor Deacon

What is the YAC?

The Youth – Adult Committee is the Committee of the St. Lawrence UU District responsible for overseeing and coordinating the YAC sponsored cons. YAC meets in person three times a year and online as necessary. YAC members have applied to be part of YAC and have been approved by the larger con community. However, all YAC meetings are open to all youth with DRE approval. Youth are encouraged to attend YAC meetings to add their voice to the conversations guiding the St. Lawrence Con community.

What kids of youth events are there?

  • Conferences, “Cons”, are guided by the Youth Adult Committee (YAC)
  • YAC also runs youth programming as part of District Assembly
  • Trainings for youth and adults who work with them are coordinated by Evin Carvill-Ziemer
  • Other youth events are planned cooperatively with groups across the region, including cluster cons
  • Youth are welcome at other district programming too!
