An important component of an effective Presbytery Youth Council is parents/guardians of the youth. Being supportive of their responsibilities and encouraging their active participation on the council is essential. If your child is selected to serve on the Council, we need to know that it meets with your approval and that you would provide encouragement, support, and help in making transportation arrangements to and from events and meeting.
I am aware that my child is applying for a position on the Presbytery of Western North Carolina Youth Council and have read the job description for the youth council members. I will support their participation on Youth Council if they are selected. I understand that three absences from rallies, retreats, or council meetings during the August 2019 to July 2020 year will result in my child’s removal from the council. I understand that while the participation of each youth council member is supported financially by the Presbytery, there are some events for which my child is expected to pay a portion of the fee (see schedule online -- https://presbyterywnc.org/youth-council).
