Vote for Youth Observer and decide who will be a leading youth voice in Unitarian Universalist national discussions. This one-year position on the Unitarian Universalist Association Board of Trustees is elected each spring by congregational youth groups across the country. The Youth Observer is the primary liaison between General Assembly Youth Caucus and the Board, and represents the larger youth voice on the Board in collaboration with the Youth Trustee.

How to Vote for Youth Observer

Your congregation’s youth group can cast its vote in two easy ways: online or by printed ballot. Voting youth must be active in their religious community.  Youth groups complete one ballot per congregation, and groups receive number of votes based on how any youth participate. For more information on how to vote, download the Voting Process information sheet.

Learn about the Youth Observer candidates by downloading the Candidates information sheet, and discuss them with your group.
