RE: 1st National College-Age Student Assembly- July 3-5, 2006 at UTS
If you havenít yet heard, the First National College-Age Student Assembly will be held at UTS in Barrytown, NY from July 3-5, 2006. Hyun Jin Nim, in his increasingly central role to lead our movement and its youth toward the future, is looking forward to meeting with all those college students concerned and committed to helping shape that future. The Assembly will address the theme: "Working Together Towards the New Future of College Youth." More than a workshop, it is a leadership assembly to plan and prepare new models of campus outreach and consider how to develop a vibrant college-age community, in connection with the heart and vision of True Parents and True Family.
A more detailed proposal, tentative schedule and registration form are attached, although much more is being planned even now. For all regional, state and church leadership, especially in the northeast, please do your best during this time of transition to convey this invitation to the college-age Blessed Children in your area. Please announce the Assembly in church this Sunday, in all bulletins if possible, and make the registration forms available.

The 1st National College Age Student Assembly "Working Together Towards the New Future of College Youth"
We are inviting all college-age Second Generation who are striving toward establishing an ideal family to attend the first ever National College Age Student Assembly from July 3rd Ė 5th at UTS.
At this historical time when True Parents have entered Godís Original Palace, let us consider the role of our second generation, who with their parents are called to substantiate Godís eternal peace kingdom.
For most Blessed Children, the college years are crucial for preparing ourselves to become ideal spouses and parents in the future. It is also a time to nurture a public mind and prepare for the future of our movement and society. However, the campus culture that surrounds us promotes elements contrary to that ideal, such as extreme individualism, irresponsibility, and the free sex lifestyle.
Throughout this Assembly, we will discuss these critical issues and consider solutions together. We have also invited Hyun Jin Nim, representing True Family, to come and share some words with us. By addressing these issues together and clarifying a common vision for the future, we hope to gain the conviction to establish this ideal and the confidence to eventually expand Godís culture of ideal families and living for others in our respective campuses and communities.
* To connect in heart with True Parents and True Children and better understand our identity as extended members of True Family.
* To identify the key challenges that we face as college students in growing our faith and heart, and in striving to establish successful Blessed couples.
* To share our best practices and begin to build a national vision along with an active network of support to fulfill that vision.
