Welcome to the Adult Young Friends info page!
The Adult Young Friends (AYF) program is a self-led intentional community of Friends age 18–35 who come together at the Gathering to inspire, create strong bonds of Friendship, and support the growth of Quaker leadership. We represent a variety of backgrounds, and hail from all over the world of Quakerdom.
Participants in AYF are involved in every aspect of the Gathering as a whole. The community self-nominates attendees for both its internal committees and for the larger Gathering, and hosts a number of AYF specific events throughout the week. We strengthen our community through worship, AYF affinity groups, Meeting for Business, and share in fellowship and celebration. We create a community in which we can grow, bond, and strengthen our connection to our chosen faith.
