Journey of Youth: JOY Village

Stay Spiritually Connected

Welcome! During this time of transformation, JOY Village is dedicated to continuously adapting and innovating to meet the needs of youth and parents. This page will be regularly updated with event and program information as well as resources to support you. We affirm and know that the highest and best for every youth and parent is unfolding perfectly. Please reach out to [email protected] should you need support or with any questions, suggestions or feedback.

Join us for our July monthly JOY “Virtual” Village Gathering!

Turn Up the Heat

 
It’s Summertime, and the heat is on! JOY Village is taking that energy of heat, movement, and deliberate direction to step out of fear and into action. We exercise our power to make a difference in our world, taking affirmation action toward what we want to create.
 
What does that look like? What would we like to see in the world and what can we do to take steps toward making that happen?
 

Join us for our virtual JOY Village Gathering as we will explore the ways we can impact our world by taking up a cause that is important to us and dedicating ourselves in some way to contribute our time, talents, and/or treasures. We turn up the heat by taking action!

Join us on Zoom Sunday, July 25 from 10:30-11:30.
