C*UUYAN Letter on Funding Cut

Funding for C*UUYAN was cut before funding for YRUU. For the young adults, this decision came without a "Consultation" process. The letter to C*UUYAN can be found here: UUA cuts funding for C*UUYAN.

We are in this together. Youth and Young Adult, along with our Adult Allies. We need to come together on our own terms, and come up with a solution.

so i have a great idea on how to keep youth and young adults in our faith! why don't we take away all funding and expect them to be able to stay afloat with the rug suddenly pulled from under them!

From the text of the letter, written by the C*UUYAN Steering Committee, it doesn't appear that all is lost for C*UUYAN. There may well be a future for the organization, which has been a "sponsored" organization of the UUA since the late 1990's.

There is more of a foundation for C*UUYAN to continue than for YRUU.

My sense from the vision and rough draft of the new UUA Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministry is that in fact more staffing will be available for these important ministries.
