The Diocese of New York will be sending a delegation of youth participants and adult chaperones to EYE20.
Youth participants must be current 9th-12th graders in 2019-20 and ages 15-19 at the time of EYE.

Each participant must be faithful, curious, and active in a worshiping community of the Episcopal Diocese of New York, and able to function well in large group settings away from home.
Adult chaperones will similarly reflect the diversity of our diocese, be age 22 and older, have served in leadership in their local church, demonstrate experience working with high school youth, have completed the Diocese of New York’s Safe Church Training within the past 5 years and have passed a Criminal Sexual Background Check conducted by the local parish or diocese within 3 years of July 7, 2020.
