    NOTE: We share the information you provide about your child with the RE staff, teaching team and, on an as-needed basis, chaperones during field trips or activities held outside of regular class times. Contact Diana Tycer, Interim Director of Religious Exploration, or Youth Ministry Coordinator Courtney Firth, youth@uucf.org, if you have information about your child or youth you would like to discuss. If you are enrolling more than one child in the RE program, please complete a separate form for each child.
