Founded in the interest of providing opportunities for "greater fellowship, to encourage the development of deeper spiritual experience, and to facilitate service projects for young Quakers" between the ages of 15 and 35 years, Philadelphia Yearly Meeting's Young Friends Movement actually began as two groups, Hicksite and Orthodox (called the Young Friends Movement and the Young Friends Committee, respectively). In May 1975, after a long period of evaluation, Young Friends Movement merged with the Religious Education Committee.
