Previous YALP participants said:
"Unbelievable. I've discovered my calling, made six close friends and begun a new Quaker journey."
"It has meant love, frustration, kindness, grumpiness, insight and most importantly in my case, a renewal of faith in a Quaker approach to life with all its charms and difficulties."
"I couldn’t bear to leave at the end of the last residential."
