Get Involved

​​​​​Trinity Youth Group | Wednesdays, 7pm; Zoom

Do you need a space where you can unwind and unmute? A channel for you to be yourself and explore the big questions - and maybe the silly ones too? Do you wonder about who you are and how you want to be in the world?  Trinity Youth Group meets each Wednesday to do all of that and more. We play games and talk about what’s on our minds, supported by our beliefs and one another. This call is led by Trinity Youth in collaboration with the Rev. Matt Welsch, Jenn Chinn, Karla Chee-a-Tow, and Damali Lewis. RSVP here.

Urban Word NYC Summer Institute 2021 | July 26 - August 1, 2021

Urban Youth Summer Institute.

Urban Word NYC’s Summer Institute will be a two-week-long writing, revision, and performance-intensive camp. Using the work of amazing artists, participants will grow as writers and performers. We've been living in a tumultuous world, and it is amidst trying times that our identities are shaped and formed. We will explore this through conversation and poetry creation.

The first week will focus on poetic creations, exploring the work of various artists, and discussions to provide prompts for writing. Then, in the second week, participants will get to improve on their performance abilities. In addition to working on their craft, participants will build community with one another, investigate what it means to be a young person in this time, and learn how our art can speak for us. This camp is perfect for any teenager interested in learning more and joining the creative community.

Tutoring for Middle & High School Students with Skooli

The Trinity Youth Faith Formation subcommittee has made online tutoring support available to Trinity Youth as an outreach of the Congregational Council. This would take the form of a shared bank of online tutoring hours that Trinity Youth can tap into whenever they have homework questions or are otherwise stuck in their studies.

In the interest of addressing this need flexibly, Trinity has connected with Skooli, who have a system and platform with trained tutors in a variety of subjects and schedules. Skooli's platform is broad and they are looking forward to supporting our youth. Because Skooli is an outside vendor, we encourage you to follow these links for more information on Skooli's terms of use and privacy policy.

For more information and to book a session, email Father Matt at mwelsch@trinitychurchwallstreet.org.
