Consistency (81527-DI-NonDis)

Whereas,is inconsistency in the definitions and the language used to refer to youth and young adults in The Book of Discipline, the Global Young People’s Convocation and Legislative Assembly (GYPCLA) recommends that the Book of Discipline be amended to provide consistency in language and definitions where referring to youth and young adults.
Therefore, we recommend that the language consistently define young people, youth and young adults as defined by ΒΆ256.3 in The Book of Discipline. These definitions should be applied consistently throughout The Book of Discipline taking into account that Central Conferences will define their own ages for young people.
