Your New Youth Observer Is…
Congratulations to Katherine Allen, who has just been elected Youth Observer to the UUA Board of Trustees for 2012-13! Thanks to all the fabulous candidates who ran this year, it was a strong slate of youth leaders.
Grade in school 2012-2013: Senior
Congregation: Unity Church-Unitarian, St. Paul, MN
“As a member and moderator of the Youth Ministry Advisory Committee [YMAC] to the UUA president for the last two years, I’ve gained a broad perspective on the issues facing youth ministry across the country. Through YMAC and my years at GA, I’ve also become familiar with the theory and practice of policy governance. My commitment to youth ministry extends outside the denomination as I’ve had a leadership role in my local Interfaith Youth Leadership Coalition. I’m also active in my home congregation’s youth group and am a member of a ministerial internship committee. I’m excited at the prospect of representing my peers on the UUA Board of Trustees.”
