This year our conference will be virtual, taking place on March 17-18, 2021. It will include specially-designed sessions for leaders of Jewish youth philanthropy programs, as well as for Jewish educators, professionals, and lay leaders in the field and beyond. There will also be a focus this year on online methodologies, community-building and connection.

Registration includes access to all workshops, technology platforms, cohort experiences, and a curated event box of premium quality tools, resources and treats to enhance your experience.

We will network, learn from one another, innovate, share resources, and grow our knowledge in Jewish youth philanthropy.
