Each summer youth from Mayflower participate in a justice-focused or service learning experience. The trips are open to youth completing 8th grade through graduating seniors. Participants live in intentional community away from the familiar and comfortable, while engaging in service and justice activities in a variety of rural and urban settings. The experiences help youth explore their passions and gifts, find their unique place in the work for justice in the world, and begin an intentional process of vocational discernment.
Previous locations include Borderlinks in Tucson, AZ, Youth Service Opportunities Project in New York City, Heifer Ranch in Arkansas, San Francisco, CA; Washington, D.C.; Pine Ridge Indian Reservation; and Alamosa, CO.
Sunday Afternoons twice per month, September–May
Confirmation at Mayflower focuses on discussion and questions rather than traditional rote memorization. It is designed as an opportunity for youth to explore their faith and decide whether they wish to claim it as their own. With new students each year, there is always a slightly different feel, but always a great time of learning and growth. We’ll learn about each other, our Christian history and rituals, and about our faith. Our facilitators, Maureen Engelhardt, Mark Lorenzen, and Bree McKee-Miller, look forward to learning and growing alongside our Confirmation students.
Our sessions will be twice per month on Sunday afternoons plus an overnight retreat in February. Mentors will join us for those sessions periodically and there will be other opportunities to participate in various worship experiences.

“The Mayflower Community has always played an important role in my life. When I was little, I loved coming to Sunday School simply to see friends, sing, and do crafts. As I grew up, Mayflower became a safe space where I could ask questions and present opinions that were listened to and never discredited…The chaos of politics, death, and everyday life are never ignored, and it has taught me a lot about my own spirituality.” —Isabel, recent high school graduate
