Young Adult Friends

Upcoming Events:


Fall 2016 Welcome Picnic – Saturday August 27th @ 5:30pm

Our long-time tradition of sandwiches, lemonade, and hot fudge sundaes on the Burtt House porch. A welcome to new students and a chance to meet other Young Adult Friends. Weather permitting, a game of croquet is also part of the tradition!

About the Group:

Traditionally known in Ithaca Monthly Meeting as “Young Friends,” the group is made up of college and grad-student+ aged people with Quaker backgrounds or an interest in the Friends community. We meet once or twice a month during the academic year for meals together, movies, hikes, or service-related projects. Students sometimes share slide shows of their studies or field work, and participants have enjoyed theme nights with food and music from a country they have worked in or visited. All are welcome!
