The Young People's Religious Union (YPRU) was a Unitarian Youth organization founded in 1896. The organization celebrated by the Unitarian Young People's Sunday[1] held annual meetings beginning in 1918 through 1950.[2] Of note was the annual conference held at the Isle of Shoals, Portsmouth, NH in 1935.[3] Topics discussed at meetings of the organization included Christian Patriotism.[4]

It was superseded by Liberal Religious Youth in 1953, as Unitarianism and Universalism came ever-closer together, but before the official consolidation in 1961.
