Bridging

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 Alice King at 619-992-1001 or alice@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.
