Young Adult & Campus Ministry



Registration for the Spring 2017 Young Adult Our Whole Lives (OWL) class is now closed. OWL is a comprehensive human sexuality education program for ages 18-35. This class is offered every other year. Please check back for updates. 

Young Adults at First Church

Young Adults (ages 18-35) are involved in many facets of First UU Church of San Diego. In addition to the opportunities described below, young adults serve on the Intern Committee, the Social Justice Ministry Team, the Membership Committee, the Board of Trustees and as Religious Education leaders. Young Adults serve as ushers, greeters, choir members, on district committees and are involved in special projects. Tania Márquez, Ministerial Staff, coordinators these activities. Contact our Young Adult Coordinator (and ministerial intern) Tania Márquez. We look forward to helping you find a home here.

Fourth Sunday Brunch

All Young Adults ages 18-35 (and yes, if you have guests/your parents visiting or a significant other out of this age range, they are very welcome to go.) Meet at the YACM table on the patio on the fourth Sunday after the second service and walk/carpool to the restaurant of the day around 1:00 pm.


Yes! There is life and connection after YRUU. The Bridging Program involves retreats and a Bridging Ceremony. The Bridging Ceremony symbolizes the passage from youth to young adulthood and celebrates the  connection to the UU Community. It is held in the Spring, usually around Memorial Day. If you are eighteen and/or will soon graduate from high school, plan to participate in The Bridging Program. Contact Käthe Larick kathe@firstuusandiego.org to register. We’ll explore possibilities after youth group, talk about what it means to be a UU Young Adult and moving from youth into adulthood. Going away to college? Moving? Stay connected. Find out how at the Bridging Workshop.


A group for this age range is in the works. Contact us if you have an interest in getting involved. Get Connected:
