Youth Council

Presbytery of the James's Youth Council (POJ YoCo) develops youth leadership through learning, volunteer service, and fellowship. Participation is open to high school students who are members of a Presbytery of the James congregation or have a connection to Camp Hanover, such as involvement in the Pathfinders program or attendance at a youth retreat. Youth Council meets monthly through June, planning and hosting events for youth across the presbytery.
