Junior Yearly Meeting (JYM) is a welcoming, exciting and thought provoking event for young people aged 15-18 (born between 1.9.1999 and 31.8.2002 inclusive). Whether you've been a Quaker all your life, or have recently discovered Quakerism, JYM offers everybody the opportunity to meet new people, make friends through social activities and engage with spiritual ideas.
The event is run by people your age, who are supported by a team of adults.
This year JYM happens as a part of Britain Yearly Meeting (BYM) an event for Quakers of all ages. You will spend most of the time with your age group at Lee Valley Youth Hostel and travel in to London to participate in some Yearly Meeting Session and activities at Friends House.
You will explore the JYM theme through speaker sessions, discussions, reflection and Quaker Meeting for Worship for Business. JYM is also a spiritual event with the opportunity for you to experience Quaker practices and Worship. Social activities and small groups, called base groups, will provide a place to build relationships and play games.
"I have learned to be more confident and have learnt how to share my own views with others, this comes hand in hand with listening to the group and being aware of their feelings."
