JUNIOR & MIDDLE SCHOOL FRIENDS CONFERENCES
Joe Schatz (Plymouth) and Stephanie Rushie (Horsham) Co-Directors 
 
 2022-2023 will mark the 
45th ANNIVERSARY
of these youth conferences!
 
    The Abington Quarter Junior Friends Conference (JFC) and Middle School Friends Conference (MSFC) provide a supportive and spiritual environment for young people 2nd through 8th grades who are members or attenders of one of the Abington Quarter Monthly Meetings. Young people in the Quarter high school age and older participate as counselors. 
 
    The Youth Programs Oversight Committee (YPOC) was established in 1976 to nurture these conferences and other youth programs in Abington Quarter. This committee has evolved and now, as the Youth Programs Support Committee (YPSC), works with the adult members of the Monthly Meetings to create new innovative programs that endeavor to fully engage the youth of the Quarter.
