This age group becomes responsive to narratives and stories that explain their lives and their world. We use stories, art, music and science projects to explain and express spiritual concepts. The youth are becoming spiritually inquisitive and benefit from encouragement to questions. This is an exciting time when the youth are often the family member asking to go to spirit school!

Teens become abstract thinkers and can reflect on past experiences looking for meaning. They begin to look for a personal relationship with Spirit and look for clarity to questions they cannot make sense of. At Unity, we encourage youth to develop a sense of self-worth, confidence as well as encouraging leadership. Youth participate in service projects in addition to Regional and International events with other Youth of Unity Students.

Through this stage, youth are learning best through concrete images, and imagination. Their first steps of spirituality or faith are the imitation of parents and teachers. At Unity we sing songs and prayers and they enjoy doing motions to these practices. They also begin to experiment with short, interactive meditations and stories with puppets or diorama’s.  The youth thrive with consistency and predictability. They also benefit from participating in practices and rituals around spirituality.

During middle school years, youth develop an increasing spiritual awareness. At this age we begin to explore metaphoric truth and metaphysical interpretation. Youth can also begin to better explore multiple perspectives and reason through what fits for them. We encourage the exploration of various answers and support rather than offering one possibility.
