Our Work

The work of our Yearly Meeting is planned, organized, and accomplished by committees that provide support to individual Friends, our Monthly Meetings, and the Yearly Meeting Annual Sessions. Some of the committees also directly advance Quaker values in the wider world. The committees listed here are working on Quaker programs, testimonies, and/or spiritual nurturance:

Youth and Young Adult Committees

Youth programs are a vital part of Ohio Valley Yearly Meeting’s ministry. During Annual Sessions, the OVYM Youth Secretary, staff and volunteers provide age-appropriate programming for children (to age 10), middle youth (11 to 13) and teens (14-18). 

The Middle Youth and Teen groups also have opportunities to meet throughout the year for various retreats and service projects.

For more information about our youth programs, contact the Youth Secretary (Kaia Jackson). Middle Youth and Teens can also connect on Facebook or Instagram

Outreach Programs (started by Yearly Meeting members)

The Braddock Fund for Prison Ministry provides support for activities and projects for prison inmates that will promote their successful re-entry into their communities.

Friends Music Camp is a summer program for young people ages 10 to 17 that is committed to helping every camper grow musically and personally in a supportive environment.

Other Committees

These groups work to support our testimonies and our spiritual nurturance:

  • Earthcare
  • Peace and Social Concerns
  • Religious Nurture and Education
  • Planning
