What is a Synod Youth Executive? - A Synod Youth Executive (SYE) is a group of young people aged 14-25 who represent young people of the Synod. The aim is to enable young people to have a voice and influence decision making in the Synod as well as helping to plan and organise events for young people.
The SYE usually meet four times a year and keep in touch between meetings. There is also opportunity to attend Synod meetings, URC Youth Assembly and maybe even represent the Synod at General Assembly.
