Yes, there is financial aid. No one has ever been turned away from a Maine Episcopal Youth Event because of inability to pay.
If you’re a teen who needs partial financial aid, then just check the financial aid box on the registration form. If you need 100% financial aid, or if there isn’t a box on the form, then just ask Jane Hartwell, or the event leader or your priest. (And remember to thank your priest after the event, because most churches contribute significantly to financial aid for the teens in their church!)
If you’re wondering how this all works, usually the congregation and the Diocese of Maine split the scholarship cost for any teen who needs it. But if the teen isn’t yet part of an Episcopal congregation, or if the congregation can’t contribute, then the Diocese of Maine takes care of it.
Your donations are always welcome!
