Unsubsidized Pricing

To provide each attendee with hotel accomodations, meals, the opportunity to attend sessions and social events, and souvenirs, the actual total cost per person is $399 for HS/College students and $449 for JNF attendees. The YJA Convention Commmittee works very hard in fundraising during the year to help subsidize each attendee's cost of attendance. 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 as affordable for as many potential attendees as possible.

Financial Assistance

For those that would like to attend but are in need of financial assistance, please download this Financial Assistance Form, fill it out, and email it to YJA Co-Chairs at Financial assistance is limited and will be awarded on a first-come first-served basis until our allocation is exhausted.
