For the Strength of Youth (FSY) conferences are 5-day conferences modeled after Brigham Young University’s popular Especially for Youth (EFY) conferences. They are held in summer. At FSY, you will experience powerful classes and devotionals, learn crazy new dance moves and games, and strengthen your faith in Jesus Christ. You will share these experiences with youth as you lead, mentor, and serve them. Take this chance to meet new people in your area with similar beliefs who may just turn out to become lifelong friends, and learn and grow together in a fun and faith-filled environment. On top of all these blessings, serving with FSY is an excellent place to build leadership, teaching, communication, and adaptability skills, making you a more attractive candidate for future employment opportunities.
