WHAT IS DYSC?... The District Youth Steering Committee (DYSC) is the youth governing body of the Heartland District. DYSC plans and runs CONS (conferences) for the youth in the Heartland District. They set policy for youth events, review bylaws, and use consensus to come to purposeful solutions.

PURPOSE OF DYSC...
~ Promote spiritual growth and leadership ~
~ Build a district-wide youth community that fosters UU values ~
~ Support the needs of young Unitarian Universalists in the Heartland ~
~ Encourage the flow of communication between youth and adults ~
~ Develop an effective system for social action ~

"SO YOU THINK YOU CAN CON"... CONS (conferences) are a great way to get to know other youth in the district who are as crazy as you are. DYSC puts on several CONS each year at various congregations in the district. There's bound to be one coming to your neighborhood soon.
