ABOUT YAC

YAC is the Yearly Adults Conference on Star Island. YAC is an intentional community that welcomes people living the early decades of adulthood. We seek to establish ourselves and define our world view, communicate our ideas and live by our principles.

We may struggle through droughts of creativity, question our spiritual direction and realign our core concepts of self-identity as we discover our view of adulthood. Some of us pursue degrees, others careers and still others pursue alternative paths, all of which afford us powerful and formative experiences. Young adulthood is a transition period of great opportunity: a time to share experience; learn from one another; create and destroy; debate and reflect; laugh and cry and be your true self. YAC explores this life in transition. 

YAC challenges us to speak to each other and listen and participate without judgment. Deeply tied to the Unitarian Universalist Association’s core principles, YAC is dedicated to the belief in the inherent worth and dignity of all people. Our programming reflects this spirt and allows us to play, explore and express ourselves in simple yet radical ways. We will share our talents and skills with each other in our workshops and our activities. We will enrich our creativity and our spirituality. YAC also offers respite at Star Island where one may enjoy a quiet sunset, be lulled by the ocean, or join in on many of our group activities. You can join the softball team, jam with fellow musicians, take a yoga class, or sing your heart out at karaoke night. You may also use the week to take time to yourself, relax with a good book, and catch up with old friends. YAC invites you to experience our community and Star Island and experience self-discovery by becoming lost in group experience.

This year we are on Star Island from June 10-17.  Whichever combination of days you come for, the full week, four days or one night, you are part of a community that operates year round (because the memories don’t fade, and we give you everyone’s contact information).
