The National Council of Churches in Christ started a program to foster stronger leadership among young adults within the NCCC-USA. This "Young Adult Stewards" Program offers all-expenses-paid participation in the annual NCC/CWS General Assembly. Applications are due August 1, 2005. You can download the application on the NCCC-USA Website. This has been something that the Ecumenical Young Adult Ministries Team has advocated for and participated in the development of (of which the UUA is a member of). Only a dozen or so "stewards" are accepted each year.
