In recognition of the unique needs and abilities of different stages of development, the Board and Core Staff have created a program for SUUSi-goers ages 11 to 13. This age group is beginning the move away from childhood and toward adolescence and the rights, privileges and responsibilities that entails.
During SUUSI, we will be creating space, opportunity and direction for each 11, 12 and 13-year-old to build community within their age group as well as with the entire 11-13s group and with the larger community. We will also be looking at ways our UU and personal values can shape our actions.
Each Middler will belong to and meet with a small group within their age group daily (much like the Teen Touch Groups) to insure that each child has a rich experience. Look at our current catalog for more information about this exciting new program.
