Junior Young Friends Gathering Expectations

JYFs try new things, attend all community meetings and events, and participate in color group activities and chores.

JYFs practice enthusiastic consent - asking for, and getting, permission before touching other members of the community or using their stuff - and treat community members, their belongings, and conference venues with care.

JYFs are kind and encouraging, don’t exclude people, listen to and respect others’ opinions - and their need for rest.

JYFs think before acting, use good judgment, and practice self-care. And they abide by any other decisions or rules made at a particular conference, particularly those involving sleep schedules and spaces.

Behavior that threatens others or makes them uncomfortable, or disrupts or destroys community, will not be tolerated. Nor will bringing or using any form of tobacco, alcohol or illegal drugs - or engaging in any form of sexual activity or harassment.

If a problem arises, JYFs notify the Youth Programs Manager or a FAP.

Consequences for violating these expectations are decided by the Youth Programs Manager, in consultation with the DFAP, other FAPs, and the JYF or JYFs involved.

Parents of JYFs are informed of any serious transgressions involving their child, either immediately or at the end of the conference.



Financial Aid: As a program we are committed to making sure everyone who wants to join us can. We do not turn people away due to finances. Our registration form allows you to choose your level of need for yourself. If you have questions about this financial aid system email Sunshine at

Covid Protocol for JYF con
1. JYFs are required to be as vaccinated as possible. 
2. All JYFs will need a negative Covid PCR test from on or after 3/8 to attend con.
3. We will be wearing masks inside except to eat and sleep. During either of those times, folks will be asked to be distanced from everyone unless they carpooled together or are in a bubble together outside of con.
