FAQs

Do I need to make a charitable contribution to UJA-Federation of New York to participate in UJA Young Leaders programming?

No, of course not! We’d love to have you be part of our community, regardless of whether or how much you can contribute. The majority of our events and programs welcome anyone who would like to participate. When you register for an event on our website, we’ll always tell you exactly how much a ticket costs.

This all looks great! Where do I start?

Wherever you like! If a particular event sounds appealing to you, feel free to sign up. And if a professional group, leadership program or volunteer project seems interesting, contact the UJA staff member listed.

Every group within UJA Young Leaders is a part of our larger community. For example, if you’re involved in Young Lawyers, you’re already a part of UJA Young Leaders. Even better: we’ll help you find your place and map out your leadership within UJA. Ready to get started?
