Presbytery of the James's Youth Council (POJ YoCo) develops youth leadership through learning, volunteer service, and fellowship. We plan and host youth events for the Presbytery of the James. Participants are high school students who are members of a Presbytery of the James congregation or have a connection to Camp Hanover, such as participation in the Pathfinders program or a youth retreat.
