What’s a Youth Collective?

Ecumenical Youth Collectives are springing up all around Portland, and elsewhere around the state as well!  Creator has been in conversation with Ecumenical partners (Presbyterian, UCC, Methodist, etc.) in SE Portland for most of the past year to explore the gift of radical welcome to young people that our traditions share.

 These conversations with SE partners led to a high school “Race & Privilege” retreat last April with ELCA Glocal musicians, which was deeply meaningful for all and provided us with continued motivation to experiment together. We believe our welcome to young people regardless of sexual orientation, legal status, cultural background, etc. is unique and needed.  We’re currently asking parents and youth about their deepest longing for what youth hope to ‘be about’ in 5-10+ years.  What qualities do they hope define their life in the world?  Further input has helped us prioritize the following characteristics about our local SE collective.

 *Create a safe space to struggle through tough questions, like who we are, and who God is.

*Step out together for issues of justice

*Include & develop loving, diverse young adult leadership
