The YAAY (Young Adult and Youth) Committee of the Regional Council  supports young leaders in planning two annual youth retreats, youth programming at the Regional Annual Meeting, and smaller gatherings of youth and young adults where possibility and passion allow. The page you see here is about the YAAY Committee; if you want to know more about our many events, and much more, please see our program page

Representation: Each member of the committee has a role that can include specific skills that get the job done, or a relationship back to a camp, area, or age demographic. The committee welcomes new members and often has openings for your gifts and skills! Interested? Please get in touch with the Coordinator of Young Adult and Youth Ministries through the staff list under About Us, or through Contact Us.
