O-H! (You say I-O!) We are the young adults of Columbus Ohio and we love to live life! We get together for regular, irregular, holiday and no-reason reasons throughout the year. Our very own Ohio born Family Room and Marble Jar discussion groups are some things we do to grow internally and connect externally together. A lot of us are avid frisbee players and enthusiasts, so when the weather is nice enough we can often be found tossing a disc together. A number of us admire the outdoors and like to hike in parks, and others of us huddle inside on colder days to crack jokes as we watch MMA fights. What’s great about this community is that anything new can start up at a moment’s notice and you can always have a good group of people to share it with.
The Belvedere community is one of the oldest communities for our movement in America, with that being said we have a very young and new young adult community. We are trying to help our young adults bond through our BLOC program by putting everyone into Blocs or small groups of faith, to discuss and support each other on their individual journeys. Also we have weekly discussion group known as PB&J to talk about different taboo topics. We try to have different events that can touch as many as our young adults so that we can all have a place to feel connected and to make sure our relationships strengthen with ourselves and with God.

Our vision is to respond to the social and spiritual needs of the youth within our church and community by building relationships, doing activities, and events that will allow them to build a strong foundation of faith.
The young adult community of Grand Rapids is very passionate about sharing the Divine Principle on campus. Those who are in college started a CARP chapter. we meet weekly to discuss a point from the Divine Principle. Through reaching out to the students on campus and introducing them to the principle, we have come to deeply appreciate our faith. Being a very young community, we have a close relationship with each other and we try to do things together. Because we cannot meet as we may want to for different reasons, we created a group chat to stay in touch with each other. We have the tradition of going out together for dinner or at the beach on major holidays.

As a Young adult ministry, our focus is to aid young adults embody God's words (True Parents' words), find their true identity, and know what kind of responsibility they have to fulfill. We also want to inspire, assist and help young people build warm, kind, and supportive relationships with one another and last but not least; recognize God's presence in people and experiences.
We meet every other Wednesday from 5pm-7pm. Most of our meetings are held at UTS, but sometimes we prefer to meet at our favorite sushi place and discuss various topics. We also have a messenger group where we can call and have small discussions.
We also gather for "BD", which simply stands for: Bond Day. Bond Day is basically a day when we are all free and meet for outdoor activities or indoor activities. Sometimes we may just chill and go out for dinner or ice cream and discuss what we are going through as individuals.

Dallas YAM's purpose is to support the growth of the whole person. To achieve that, our ministry focuses on faith, friendship, and career development. In the past year, we have aligned our events to these three pillars: hosting a monthly discussion on an aspect of our faith, a monthly board game night, and a few career development brunches. In addition to our regular programs, we have had an annual holiday party, an outing to a state park, and participated in community service projects.
