AEU’s Ethical Education for high school-aged young adults offers greater freedom and self-direction in a safe, respectful, and confidential environment. Teens freely discuss and explore topics that are relevant and important to them while planning activities that allow them to directly engage ethical questions and current issues in the world around them.
While the groups are generally youth-led, an adult advisor is always present to help guide the discussions and projects as needed. Each Fall, youth groups from local Ethical Societies gather together for a Youth of Ethical Societies (YES) Conference.
Teens work together to organize service activities, fundraisers, and opportunities for ethical action. We hope that they’ll find room to think, room to examine and thoughtfully question the assumptions they may have inherited. Together, youth group teens tend to exercise an inspiring capacity to think critically and act ethically.
For details of the Young Adult program in your area, contact your local Ethical Society.
The 2017 YES Conference will be in November. Details to come.
