Unsubsidized Pricing

To provide each attendee with hotel accommodations, meals, transportation, souvenirs, and the opportunity to attend sessions and social events, the actual total cost per person is $539. The YJA Convention Committee works very hard to fundraise throughout the year to help subsidize the cost of attendance for each attendee. If you have the means to, we would greatly appreciate it if you could help YJA by choosing the "Unsubsidized" pricing option at the time of payment. This would help us raise the money we need to ensure YJA events remain affordable for as many potential attendees as possible.

Financial Assistance

We acknowledge that attending the Convention is a costly endeavor, and we want to ensure that all members have the opportunity to attend our events regardless of socioeconomic background or current circumstances. If, for any reason, you are hesitant to register for Convention due to financial constraints, please consider requesting Financial Assistance through the registration portal. Every year, we are proud to support youth from all backgrounds in accessing the Convention experience. Financial Assistance requests will be kept fully confidential and anonymous — only the 4 Convention Co-Chairs will have access to them. Financial assistance will be awarded on a first-come-first-serve basis, at the discretion of the Co-Chairs, until the allocation of assistance funds is exhausted.
