Welcome to EpiscoYouthProject 2012, designed to collect stories from everyone concerned about the budget changes for youth and young adults in the Episcopal Church. These changes, which will result in an approximately 90% funding cut for these ministries, have not been approved yet (more information here), which is where we come into play.
Our goal is to make voices heard, quite literally, by uploading personal stories and reasons why we disagree with the allocation of funds (or lack thereof) for youth. Please feel free to upload your own personal story (preferably less than a minute) explaining who you are, why this is important to you, and why you don’t think this proposed budget should come to fruition. While we recognize that there are those who may be viewing this that are in support of the youth funding cut, we ask that they refrain from uploading personal videos here and instead post it elsewhere.
Thank you and happy uploading!
From Building the Continuum: While this is a youth (ages 13-18) & young adult (ages 18-35) project, wouldn’t it be interesting to have children and Christian educators post their own stories?
