Youth Councils

Jr. High youth council meets most first Sundays of the month in the teen center.  (The few exceptions to this will be noted in the bulletin under Youth Notes.)  Youth council and all youth activities are open to anyone who attends Unit 50 Junior High.  Meetings typically run from 6:30-7:30 pm in the Teen Center.  High school youth council meets from 7:30-8:30 pm.  As a group, the youth council decides what activities they would like the parish to consider offering.

Types of events fall under four basic categories:
Spiritual growth–activities designed to bring students closer to God and their faith
Fundraising–activities to raise money to help defray costs of other activities.
Social–events that bring kids together in a non-threatening, “safe” chaperoned atmosphere.
Service–opportunities for kids to live their faith and serve one another like God asks us to.

Youth activity opportunities are listed in the parish bulletin under “Youth Notes.”
