Southern Appalachian Yearly Meeting and Association


Young Adult Friends

Are you out of high school?

Do you consider yourself young or young at heart?

We want you to join Young Adult Friends!

Who are YAFs? SAYMA Young Adult Friends (YAF) is a community of peers who meet for fellowship and fun at Yearly Meeting. We strive to create an open, safe and sacred space for spiritual growth and for building community in the Quaker tradition. We also provide support for the many transitions that we as young adults are experiencing and work to nurture the needs and concerns of this age group within the wider community.

What do YAFs do? At Yearly Meeting, when we are not participating in adult programs like workshops and worship sharing, we meet for our own worship, help with SAYF and JYM, participate in the Talent Show and the dance, and continue the tradition of welcoming new SAYF graduates to our community. We also strive to keep in touch during the year and continue our fellowship.

Simple Meals Option at Yearly Meeting: What better way to build community outside of worship than by eating? YAFs are encouraged to live together in our own dorm and, if you want, join in a simple supper with us and members of the wider SAYMA community on Friday and Saturday by signing up for the SSO option. If you sign up for SSO, donít sign up for those two meals in the cafeteria when you register, and do bring food, dishes, and cooking utensils with you when you come to yearly meeting.

Just ask for the YAF dorm when you register.
