Continuing Revolution: Peace

A Young Adult Friends Conference

Pendle Hill invites all Young Adult Friends (ages 18-35) to be a part of an intensive six-day conference designed to strengthen a networked generation of awakened and effective spiritually grounded change agents. The program will include inspirational speakers, workshops and trainings, worship and worship-sharing, fellowship, community-building activities and discernment opportunities. We are calling all young adult Friends who feel a movement in our generation to create the world we believe is possible, and to live into Right Relationship with the Divine, one another and the earth.

This conference is open and welcoming to young adult Quakers of all backgrounds, experiences and Friends’ theologies. While we recognize that this gathering is firmly rooted in the unprogrammed Friends' tradition, we also believe the thematic content to be urgently relevant to all branches of Quakerism and hope all interested young adults will feel that their voices belong at this table.

We are asking interested individuals to apply to this program so that we have a better understanding of each participant’s background and hopes. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, and applicants will be notified within 2-3 weeks of submitting their application. Apply early, as space is limited! Full conference fees are $325; scholarship assistance is available to those who need support (see questions at the bottom of this application for information on how to request assistance).
