Late fall retreat: "Activism"


Friday, November 17, 2017 - 7:00pm to Sunday, November 19, 2017 - 12:00pm


Friends Meetinghouse
1837 Forest Ave
Portland , ME


This is a weekend-long gathering for high school age youth interested in building community and exploring the Quaker way.

The theme of this retreat is "Activism". Through workshops, large & small group programs, and hearing from guest speakers, we will explore these queries:

  • What do we mean when we talk about "activism"? 
  • How do we figure out how to respond when the world seems to be broken in so many ways?
  • How can our activism be effective and Spirit-led?
  • How can we grow our practical skills and nurture our spiritual gifts to improve our work for peace & justice?

To register, please fill out this form. Registrations prefered by November 7th.
