Making Our Covenant

our learning and working together as this year’s Mid Maine YoUUth Group:

Listen to one another

Respect what other people say

Not laughing at each other

Clean up after yourself

Show up on time

Start and end on time

If you can’t be there, let adult know

Challenge yourself step up or  step back

Assume positive intent

Be brave

Be safe

Respect boundaries

Have fun

Honor the need for safety and confidentiality

 

Break – People payed their monthly dues to Mark Glovin, Mid Maine YoUUth treasurer.

 

What do YOU know about the United Nations?! J   Morten Moesswilde, Belfast

Morten prepared a fun quiz about the United Nations. We learned lots and can see more clearly what we don’t yet know! At each of our meetings, we’ll spend some time learning about the work of the UN and their engagement with refugees which is part of the focus of this year’s Multigenerational Program.
