March 10-12, 2017

With Julie Glynn and Chris DeRoller of the Powell House Youth Program  

In the style of a Powell House Youth Program, we'll explore what it means to be a parent with integrity in the 21st century. And you'll get an opportunity to experience the regenerative power of a youth retreat. The weekend will include small group discussions, large group activities, self-space time and communal worship. There will be movement and stillness, definitely laughter and probably some tears, wholesome food and some decadent snacks. And space . . . to rest, write, make music, paint, sculpt, walk, and connect. We'll also tap into the experience of those gathered to share tips and resources for all the different stages of growing up our kids and we go through.

Julie Glynn is the parent of three young women now in high school and college. She was once a kid herself and, as a youth, she found joy and fellowship at Powell House. She helps with First Day School at Brooklyn Monthly Meeting.

Chris DeRoller and Mike Clark have been the Powell House youth program co-directors for 16 years. They work with children, teens, young adults, and older adults to create supportive, happy, spirit-filled spaces. Chris and Mike have raised two children, now young adults, who have successfully disproved several of their parenting theories.
