Every three years, in accordance with General Convention Resolution #1982-D079, the Episcopal Church convenes an international youth event so “that the energy of the youth of the Episcopal Church can continue to be utilized in active ministry as members of the Body of Christ.” Since the first EYE in 1982, this popular event has welcomed thousands of young people from across the Episcopal Church for celebration, worship, learning, and leadership training. EYE 20 is geared for youth in grades 9-12 during the 2019-2020 academic year and adult youth leaders.
The next Episcopal Youth Event (EYE20) will be held in partnership with the Episcopal Diocese of Washington D.C. from July 7-11, 2020. EYE20 is geared for youth in grades 9-12 during the 2019-2020 academic year and adult youth leaders. Applications are due January 14.
We estimate the cost to be no more than $1000 per participant. We ask that each applicant contribute 50% of the total cost to attend. This is not mandatory, but if able, this helps keep the cost down for all participants and ensures we will have a large number of youth attending EYE 2020. If in need of financial assistance, please also consider talking to your church about scholarships as many churches are willing to pay 50% to 100% of the cost for their young person to attend EYE. All information regarding scholarships will remain confidential.
