Registration is now open for those interested in serving as counselors for the Youth Program of the 19th All-American Council (AAC), which will convene in St. Louis, MO, July 23-27, 2018.

The Orthodox Church in America’s All-American Council brings together the clergy and faithful to discuss and reflect on the needs of the church. The AAC also includes a vibrant and dynamic Youth Program which brings together hundreds of young people from across North America for a week of worship, fellowship, educational, and service activities.

Those OCF leaders and members who are interested in serving as counselors can apply online. Early application is encouraged, as the number of counselor slots is limited. The deadline for volunteer registration is January 1, 2018.
