2017-2018 Curriculum

Middle School-Grade 6-8

Compass Points leads participants on a year -long spiritual journey:

To discover what they believe about life's big questions

To think independently, assume responsibility, make decisions and explore values

To have a background in Unitarian Universalist history, polity and theology

To understand that religious liberty is a hard-won legacy .


High School- Grade 9-12

"Can We Talk?"

How do we think critically and deeply about big questions? How do we listen well to others?  How do we present a personal point of view effectively? Unitarian Universalism is a faith that seeks to help build a world community of peace, liberty and justice for all, pursue a free and responsible search for truth and meaning, and affirm the inherent worth and dignity of every person.  The class will be asking and exploring their own big questions while developing skills that make civil discourse productive and transformative.  Real life skills for real life questions.

Summer for Youth & Teenagers

Middle School and High School classes take a break in the summer, though many youth attend worship with their families or gather in the high school room with friends.

Special Programming for Youth & Teens

Our Whole Lives

This is  an OWL Year!


Our Whole Lives is the best human sexuality and relationship-values course ever developed.  OWL has been a core program for grades 7-9 at UUCA youth for many years. 


The program will kick off in September with parent information and orientation sessions.  Once youth sign on and commitments are made, the group will be closed for the year.  This is necessary for building the trust and sense of safety among members that is vital to the success of OWL.  It's a phenomenal experience.  Don't' miss this opportunity for your youth to be part of a program guaranteed to help them lead a healthy and fulfilling life. Class size is limited.


COYA Youthgroup - Community of Youth and Adults

COYA is our youth group for grades 7-12. Members plan and participate in social events, field trips, social justice and fundraising projects which build community and develop leadership skills. It is youth lead with the support and guidance of adult advisors. COYA meets at noon on the first Sunday of each month in the high school room.


District Youth Conferences (Cons)

Many of our youth attend youth conferences organized by the Youth Adult Committee (YAC) of the Ohio Meadville District (OMD). Cons bring together Unitarian Universalist youth from a four state region for worship, workshops, social justice projects, and just plain fun. Con activities are organized and facilitated by youth with the support adult advisors. Info at
