    BACKGROUND & FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    How does the funding work? Who's eligible? Funds will be allocated by CYM Education & Outreach Committee, and will take into account financial need, desire to attend CYM, and home region. Anyone under 35 with a connection to the Religious Society of Friends is eligible--first time CYM attenders are encouraged! Young Friends are typically defined as being at least 12 or 13, but the Youth Challenge may be able to fund younger Friends as well, particularly if they are the children of Young Adult Friends also attending CYM. All applicants should write their own applications. We hope that Friends will also seek support from their Monthly Meetings. A Minute from your Monthly Meeting in support of your attendance at CYM is encouraged but not required, as we understand that not all Young Friends have a strong connection to a Monthly Meeting.
