JYM 2017

This event took place at the same time as Yearly Meeting Gathering, which is the annual meeting of Quakers in Britain.

The participants at Junior Yearly Meeting considered the theme "Working with others to make a difference".

The residential event was attended by 62 young people aged 14 to 17. As a part of this event the group had a Quaker Meeting for Worship for Buisness where they agreed the JYM Epistle. This was read out in the final session of Yearly Meeting. Each small group known as a Base Group had the chance to feed their experience of the event in to this. This caputures the 'sense of the meeting' and is a collective decision by this group of young people which is expressed in the Epistle.
