This summer youth, defined as sixth through 12th graders, will be participating at General Convention in three unique ways:
- As duly elected deputies attending with their diocesan deputation with voice and vote on the floor in the House of Deputies. Yes, some dioceses have elected teenagers as deputies and alternates, but they must be at least 16 years old to serve.
- As one of 18 members of the General Convention Official Youth Presence (GCOYP). Nomination and selection process begins December 1, watch for details.This is also open to 16-18 year-olds only.
- As visitors to General Convention attending with their youth group or family. Here's the middle school, too, option :)
Thank you Province V, we look forward to greeting you in Indy next July!
