NYYM Mentoring Survey
At Summer Sessions 2019, Young Adults expressed a number of fundamental needs. One was a desire for "mentoring, eldership, and spiritual accompaniment to support personal journeys, develop Divine gifts, and nurture leadings and ministries." Another was a request for additional "investment and resources to build [YA] capacity as Quaker leaders, ministers, elders, and community leaders."

New York Yearly Meeting, the Spiritual Nurture Working Group, and ARCH are working together to build a mentoring program to address these needs and to better support the spiritual development of young adult Friends AND all Friends. Help us shape the program by completing the 10-question survey below.
