We are excited to announce that the registration for the Annual Regional Retreat for Young Adults (ARRYA) 2019 is now open. The YA retreat is open to YAs (ages 18-40) and SSE Group 4 students (age 16+). If you are a Group 4 student under the age of 16 and would like to attend, please contact the regional YA reps.
We are planning lots of fun activities, workshops, and a service project. A detailed agenda will be provided soon. In order to help you with finalizing travel arrangements, expect the retreat to convene on Saturday morning and finish by Sunday lunch time. Childcare will be available for young adults with children.
