Adopt A Youth Council of Regents Outreach Program The secret message communicated to most young people today by the society around them is that they are not needed, that the society will run itself quite nicely until they â€” at some distant point in the future â€” will take over the reigns. Yet the fact is that the society is not running itself nicely because the rest of us need all the energy, brains, imagination and talent that young people can bring to bear down on our difficulties. For society to attempt to solve its desperate problems without the full participation of even very young people is imbecile.â€ â€” Alvin Toffler I started off with this quote because it rings true in the International Court System. All over the ICS you hear of chapters that are struggling with memberships, changing communities and even past monarchs are feeling "left out". I have asked myself 3 questions. How can we change the narrative? How can we be more visible in the community? How can we be more adaptable to change? Well here is the break down: How can we change the narrative? A: I believe this begins with us being more open with communication as an over all organization. With the open dialogue by educating our youth in our local community we can have the lines of communication become more open. How can we be more visible in the community? A: We have to show up! Showing up isn't just about showing up at events, this also includes showing up when we are called on to aid in tasks that can be daunting. Well Regents This is one of those calls! We need to grow, educate & we are needing your help! The wealth of knowledge that our Regents hold is what our youth is seeking. This is a way we can be more visable with the "Adopt a Youth" Program. How can we be more adaptable to change? A: Change can be uncomfortable for many people, the fact still remains that with the evolution of our communities across the ICS we need to adapt! We need to become more welcoming, show more love and begin looking at every situation with an open heart and open mind. I know this is not going to be easy and it is not a simple process but, it is a much needed first step. This "Adopt A Youth" program will give us, the Regents an opportunity to reach out and have a hand in the growth of our Organization. The idea is to gather Regents who would like to purchase a Ticket for a youth member of our community for Coronation. This will be the beginning of renewed relationships with Inside Out Youth Services, UCCS, CC & PPCC. This Program will also help streghthen the outreach leg of our organization. By doing this we will be able to setup the unlimited growth potential funnel that we can use as a means to educate and grow membership. This is an opportunity for us to see our organization flourish as we begin planting the seeds we will be nourishing into future leaders and monarchs of our beloved UCPPE. If you are interested in getting involved with the First Annual "Adopt a Youth" Program please contact Candy Rose Dowager Empress 34/Public Relations Member at Large of the BOA or any member of the Board of Advisors. We look forward to working with those who are interested in this exciting new program with renewed excitement in our Community. From the Heart, Through The Court, For The Community.

How did we start this State Event?
Coronation is the last event of the Imperial year. It celebrates the birthday
of the Court. The Monarchs have worked hard all year, and they step down with their friends and family from all over the Imperial Court System. Right now, the UCPPE celebrates an entire weekend of events.
Coronation Weekend is also the start of the new year for the next Reign. The newly elected Monarchs are brought into the ballroom and crowned at the end of the event.
Coronation had been scheduled in June during the first years of the Court. Coronation was cost effective during the days before summer began. However, Colorado Springs is known for its resorts and sunshine during the summer. Hotels grew to be more expensive during the summer.
Coronation was moved to November. The event has been enjoyed with both comfortable and inclement weather. But, because of talented people, the event has been a success and affordable for both the organizers and the guests.
Coronation is a chance for the Monarchs to honor their friends that have been inspirational throughout the year. These guests are Command Performers. They perform at different parts of the evening. Since Reign XXXI, the UCPPE allows for only ten command performers to have appropriate time management throughout the event.
Coronation is an event where the community sees the results of Voting Day. There is a new Emperor and Empress, but there are also new Members at Large for the Board of Advisors.
