With conventions, Shabbatons, dances, sports leagues, service projects, travel opportunities, and more, there are tons of opportunities to meet new friends, grow, and find a safe, fun space where you can be yourself.
“USY has given me a community that has developed my confidence, allowing me to go wherever I can, and be whoever I want. It has also given me a place to go when times get tough, and has been my second home for as long as I can remember.”
-Ben; River Forest, IL (CHUSY)
“USY has shown me how observance can connect to our own lives. Service don’t have to be stuffy and boring, they can be extremely impactful if you let them…Prayer and observance is not a limit on your life. Rather, it elevates your life, and makes everything more meaningful.”
-Emma; Bala Cynwyd, PA (EPA/Hagesher)
“USY allowed me to explore social action in order to find something greater than myself to connect to. Through USY I defined my individual Judaism and was given the opportunity to do so in a community of teens doing the exact same thing.”
