Coronavirus Update

3/18/2020 UPDATE:

Current recommendations from the CDC are to not hold gatherings of more than 50 people for the next eight weeks. Due to these recommendations, we have extended the cancellation of all USY in-person programs that are scheduled before Memorial Day.

USY has already offered many online programs and we will continue to share information as more programs are available. In the meantime, please make sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram to see everything going on with USY.


Dear USY Friends,

We are continuing to monitor the reports of COVID-19 around North America and at this time, out of an abundance of caution, we have made the decision to cancel all USY regional and international programs through April 19, 2020.

USY is committed to providing your child and our staff with a safe and healthy environment while attending USY and Kadima programs and we feel that the best way to promote health at this time is to keep everyone at home. We will evaluate regional programs taking place from the last week in April – June by April 1.

We will be submitting refunds for the programs. Please allow a few weeks for us to process the refunds.
If you have questions about specifics for your region such as regional elections, chapter awards, etc., please speak to your branch staff.

We will continue to monitor the situation and will follow both CDC and local Health Department Guidelines. We will notify you with further updates.

Join us on March 15th at 3:30 EDT for our virtual program, Connecting While Disinfecting. Check out our Facebook page for the link.

Stay healthy and we look forward to seeing you soon!
