Junior Yearly Meeting (JYM) is a loving and nurturing community for children in grades two through six. JYM sponsors four weekend retreats a year at various locations around New England and provides a joy-filled and grounded program during our Annual Sessions gathering in August. Please use the side bar to find extensive information on our program, staff and resources, as well as a bit about what grounds us in this ministry.
We are always looking for appropriate, grounded, and loving adults to join us on staff at JYM Retreats. Our staffers are a remarkable crew of Friends with a variety of gifts and spiritual journeys who really enjoy being with each other as well as with our JYM children. If you love being with children, have a good sense of humor, a willing heart, a reasonable back, and don’t mind sleeping short hours on (mostly) hard floors be in touch with Gretchen Baker-Smith, JYM-JHYM Coordinator.
