Upstate NY NCSY is a tight-knit region of NCSY’s national youth group where Jewish teens are encouraged to grow into leaders. We strive to create a positive, non-coercive environment that empowers teens to make informed and educated choices that further their commitment to passionate Judaism. We provide a range of educational programs on the regional and chapter level.

We believe in teaching though example, and our hand-picked advisors and staff model a diverse, passionate, open–minded and enthusiastic approach to Jewish life. NCSY enables each teen to fulfill his or her personal potential as a Jew, as a leader and as a valued community member.
