[wr_vc_accordions][wr_vc_accordion title=”What is USY and Kadima?” active=”active”]

Year after year, many parents tell us they choose to send their children to Kadima and USY because of our continued commitment to providing high quality programming on all levels. Whether it is due to our constant communication throughout our USY Summer Programs, or the high staff to USYer ratio at our regional conventions, parents feel safe and secure sending their children to Kadima and USY events.

These programs can be life changing experiences. The future of the Jewish community depends upon these youth people who participate in Kadima and USY gain experiences that remain with them into adulthood.
