Regarding Plans and Programs in Fall 2020:

These plans have been made with various parents and youth volunteers based on what we have done in the past and anticipating needs in the future, which is amazing. However, if these plans don't work with the reality of what shape the present/near future is taking, that's ok too; we will just need to adjust. Your feedback is key to making those adjustments possible. Please reach out to me directly or use this SGUMC Youth Feedback Form to provide feedback at anytime... about anything!
