Please fill out a separate form for each person you would like to register. If you are registering for the scholarship option, leave the Qty blank and enter your dollar amount in the box to the right of the second section below.

We are using a pay-as-led system for these gatherings. The weekend costs $50 per person. We expect those with access to fewer financial resources to pay less and those with access to more financial resources to pay more. We trust that each participant will make the decision for themselves about what their budget can afford and support.

You are able to set your payment amount; no one needs to ask for or complete a scholarship application. We encourage Friends to request financial and prayer support from their home meetings and churches as needed/available. We also have a number of ways that Friends can volunteer at the retreat, there is a sign up later in the registration for this

Total: $0.00
Future Commitment: $0.00
Participant Information

(if applicable)
for example: woman, trans*, gender non-binary, etc. We honor gender self-determination and diversity at YAF Retreats.
for example: She/her/hers, They/them/theirs, He/him/his. We recognize that pronoun preferences are fluid and may change from day to day. We ask only so that we have a sense of how you would like us to refer to you.
We recognize that our identities intersect with many other experiences, and we aspire to create a space that reaches out to folks with different backgrounds. Please share your personal identities that are important to you:

For example: immigrant, person of color [black, latinx, asian, indigenous], local to philadelphia, white, working class, genderqueer, LGBTQ , artist/musician, parent/caregiver, etc.
Access Needs
What are access needs?

An access need is something a person needs to communicate, learn, and fully take part in an activity. Examples of access needs include: ramps or elevators to enter spaces, scent-free spaces, easy to read language or interpretation support, folding chairs with no arms, etc.

**Please note** The Spirit of Young Adult Friend Retreats can be group oriented with lots of shared space, activities, movement, loud noises, etc. We encourage and expect participants to take care of their bodies, heart and minds in their own wisdom, and we'll designate quiet spaces and unstructured time in our days.

As you register, know that we're committed to co-creating a supportive, accessible space, and we want you to ask for what you need- even if we can't make it happen.
Access needs look different for everyone - share what feels right for you, we trust your wisdom.
Please list (vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, lactose intolerant, no pork etc)
We are working to build proactive (rather than reactive) infrastructure for self- and community- care.
In order to support participants who are also caregivers, PYM is able to provide childcare upon request.
Is there anything else you need the facilitators or organizers to know so that you will be able to participate fully?
Emergency Contact Info

Transportation - Please let us know how you intend to travel. We are using YAF April Retreat Carpool to organize carpools to the retreat. Haverford Meeting is about a 30 - 60 minute drive by car, and an hour by train.
(If offering a ride, or requesting a ride)
Is there anything you would particularly like to have offered during program or fellowship time?
The Young Adult Engagement Coordinator often uses photographs of events on social media (Instagram, Facebook) and on the website. Please let us know if you do not want photos of you included.
It would be a couple of hours long. Young Adult Friends from the Haverford College Cooperation, and others would be in attendance as well!
Is there anything else you would like to share with the retreat planners about your hopes for the weekend?
