USY has always been committed to providing travel experiences for Jewish teens that are transformative and exciting. We strive to create an environment in which participants can build community, develop their Jewish identity, and explore the world around them in a fun and meaningful way. Throughout the past 65 years, our top priority has always been the safety of our participants and staff. Unfortunately, this meant that due to COVID-19, all Summer 2020 Travel Experiences were canceled.
It is with a heavy heart that we are announcing that we will not be running USY North America Travel Experiences for the summer of 2021 (USY on Wheels – Classic, USY on Wheels – East, USY on Wheels – Pacific Northwest, DREAM and TivnUSY). At this time, we do not believe that we can provide trips in North America that could guarantee the safety and health of your children while providing an exceptional experience.
Registration for Summer 2021 is now open for Israel travel. If you are interested in signing up for one of our 2021 Summer Travel Experiences, know that you will be able to do so with peace of mind, as our deposits will be fully refundable – with no penalties – through March 15. As we are continuously updating our programmatic policies, this date may be extended depending on the nature of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
