Q: Why did NCSY decide to create YouthCon?
A: We have many informal Jewish educators on our staff who were looking for a forum to exchange ideas and networks with professionals from other Jewish organizations.  We did not know of any such venue, so that was when the first seeds of YouthCon were planted.

Q: How did you come up with the name “YouthCon”?

A: Funny story. A childhood friend of mine, brilliant guy, is actually a big comic book fan.  He grew up always telling me about ComicCon.  That probably planted the seed for the name. Since our mission is helping Youth, rather than the comic book industry, I figured YouthCon was nice way of succinctly expressing our mission.

Q: What has been your favorite part of planning YouthCon?

A: Working with a great team here in the downtown office and getting to meet so many innovative and exciting Jewish organizations throughout the country.

 
Whirlwind promotion for YouthCon has begun.  Members of the NCSY National team have been setting up meeting with Jewish organization and movements throughout the country in order to spear the word about the upcoming conference.

Do you know someone who would want to attend YouthCon?

Help spread the word!
