Next steps in the process

Over the past several months, USY has engaged nearly 500 diverse community and Movement stakeholders in envisioning an innovative and sustainable future for our youth movement. We’ve heard from current USY teens, alumni, parents, educators, clergy, and many more. 

Through this process, several themes emerged: 

  • Belonging and Community
  • Leadership Development
  • Teens at the Center
  • Connections to the Conservative/Masorti Movement 
  • Creating Partnerships with other Organizations

It was clear from our stakeholders that USY has decades of success and we are ready to move forward in co-creating the next chapter of USY for the modern era.

With all of the feedback, our Strategic Planning Vision Team gathered in person, engaging in invigorating sessions of defining our future vision, and created a “Strategic Framework for the Future”. This framework includes the draft of our Vision Statement, the five Pillars for future focus, and key shifts for the organization under this framework.
