Friends General Conference

Together we nurture the spiritual vitality of Friends

Spiritual Mentorship Program

Program Overview:

FGC is piloting a Spiritual Mentorship Program for youth and young adults interested in developing their spiritual gifts of clerking, discernment, and community leadership.

The purpose of the program is to nourish & nurture intergenerational relationships that foster transformation and growth and to provide spiritual accompaniment in our lives as Friends and beyond.

This 6-month program will connect early-growing Seekers with seasoned-and-still- growing Mentors.

Participant Expectations:

To participate in this program, we ask that you commit to attending an online discernment session in August/September 2021 and to meet twice a month with your Seeker/Mentor from Fall 2021 to Winter 2022. Each pair will be assigned an Advisory Committee member for support. We will hold optional monthly full group check-in sessions and a Closing Celebration in March 2022.

For more information, read our program description.

Application:

If you would like to participate in the program as a Seeker and/or Mentor, please complete an application.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis until August 22, 2021.

Interested in participating but can't serve as a seeker or mentor? We are currently seeking Friends to serving on the Advisory Committee! For more information, read our Advisory Committee description.
