BYU announces first ever EFY for young single adults


For any young single adults who are missing the camaraderie, friendships, and fun they experienced as an EFY youth participant, a brand-new opportunity is coming this summer. BYU will be putting on the first ever Especially For Young Single Adults conference (EFYSA) in summer 2023.

The event is available to young single adults ages 18–30 and will take place August 16–19, 2023, in Nauvoo, Illinois. As part of the weeklong conference, attendees will also have a chance to visit the Nauvoo Temple and experience the spirit of historic Nauvoo and its Church history sites.

The newly created event—with the sites and history of the early Latter-day Saints as a backdrop—will have a more mature focus than the youth event in its group discussions and devotionals. But the EFYSA page explains that, in true EFY fashion, the week will still include a dance and variety show.

Tuition for the program will run between $215 and $395 depending on housing and shuttle preferences. Attendees can pay for housing through EFYSA at the Nauvoo Family Inn and Suites, find their own housing, or commute to the event if they live close enough. For those who live elsewhere and will be traveling for the event, a shuttle from the St. Louis Lambert International Airport will also be available.
