Children and Youth Programming at the CYM in Session Annual Gathering, July 8-13th, 2023
Program Committee is so pleased that Nathalie Brunet has stepped forward to take the Children and Youth Coordinator role for CYM 2023, as well as offering to lead the Young Friends (teens-age) group.
We are deep into the planning for a blended Annual Gathering this year, based in Winnipeg at the Canadian Mennonite University. The schedule will include in-person events, online events, and events that will bring both in-person and online communities together in some shared sessions.
As part of that planning we are delighted to have the opportunity to work with Nathalie as she reaches out to parents and others to begin to design the Annual Gathering’s programming for children and youth.
Many in CYM know Nathalie for her generous service to the Meeting and many know her for her joyous commitment to teaching and supporting young folk.
Nathalie is a member of Annapolis Valley MM and lives in St.John's NL where she attends the St.John's Worship Group. She has served from 2012 to 2018 as a member and then clerk of Program Committee. She is a recently-retired junior high science teacher who is looking forward to bringing her years of experience and enthusiasm for youth to the Quaker community.
Nathalie will be in contact through Monthly Meetings in the coming weeks, to begin a conversation about how we can gather as a community that best serves the needs of families and young Friends.
