Durango UU offers a safe inclusive space for youth to explore faith, belief and non-belief. It is a place for authentic curiosity and connection. Middle and High School youth groups gather separately on Sunday mornings. Both are engaged in the Soul Matters curricula and sometimes do service projects and social events together.
