Broadening engagement with youth & young adults
Three young adults with a long history of participation in Conference youth programs and activities worked this spring with staff to plan, develop and launch the Conference’s Instagram channel.
We are delighted to announce that each of the young adults who were part of this initial project – Cecilia Alexander (UCC New Brighton), Cole Marshall (First Congregational UCC, Anoka), and Kristen Peterson (First Congregational UCC, New York Mills) – will continue to work with the Conference this summer as Youth Engagement & Social Media Interns. They will work with the Outdoor Ministry Program Director and Associate Conference Minister of Faith Formation to manage content and campaigns on Instagram, help plan and facilitate online gatherings for youth and young adults, and consult with staff about how to build broader engagement with youth across the Conference.
We look forward to working with these talented, energetic, passionate, and insightful young leaders. Please join us in welcoming Cecilia, Cole, and Kristen and take a moment to read their words of introduction below.
