Episcopal Youth Event 2020 (EYE2020)!

The Episcopal Youth Event (EYE) is a triennial event for the entire Episcopal Church. Over 1000 people (high school students, their adult mentors, and Bishops from around the church) come together and live on a college campus for a little under a week. Time is spent in worship, large group presentations, small group discussions on a variety of topics and a lot of time hanging out and meeting people from around the world.

#EYE20 will be held in the heart of Washington D.C.
#EYE20 will take place on the dates of July 7-11, 2020.

#EYE20 is open to youth currently in 9th-12th grades, or the equivalent.

Applications for adult mentors and youth participants are due January 1st, 2020.

The cost per participant will be $500. Each individual, with the support of their parish, will be expected to raise $500 toward the cost of the event.

The diocese is subsidizing the remainder of the true cost of EYE, which includes event registration, travel, food, and materials.

We see our delegation as pilgrims that we are sending forth to this experience, it is expected that the individual’s parish will sponsor the participant for all or the majority of their total cost.

While we encourage everyone to apply, we will be bringing a delegation of diverse young leaders who represent the breadth of our diocese. We will be choosing people through an application process to ensure that the selected youth who are ready to experience the greater church and her diversity, and who also demonstrate capacity to bring home what they have experienced and learned to share with their peers and members of our diocese.

We hope to have a diverse group of faithful, mature high schoolers, along with adults enthused about learning with them, and empowering and equipping them to be disciples in the world. Members of our delegation will come from parishes with and without “youth groups.” All members of our delegation will need to be able to speak up in groups, to have the language to share their own faith journeys, and to be trustworthy in honoring the covenant for behavior required of all participants.

E.Y.E. is for youth in grades 9-12 during the 2019-2020 academic year and their adult leaders.

Please submit your completed application no later than Wednesday, January 1, 2020. All questions may be directed to Jody Davis at jdavis@dioet.org
