EFY for YSAs is back this summer, hosted by the North America Central Area


For any young single adults missing the camaraderie, friendships, and fun they experienced as an FSY or EFY youth participant, you can still relive and revisit some of that magic this summer. After last year’s successful EFYSA session in Nauvoo, the North America Central Area is hosting even more YSA conferences for summer 2024, and in even more locations!

Summer 2024’s North America Central Area YSA conferences will be held in Denver, Colorado, Boise, Idaho, Kansas City, Missouri, Nauvoo, Illinois, Idaho Falls, Idaho, and Calgary, Canada. And each location will have something unique for YSAs to participate in. Here are the dates and what you can expect at each awesome session:

Here’s a video recap from last year’s EFYSA event in Nauvoo, showcasing what YSA participants can expect from the weekend conference.

These YSA conferences will have a more mature focus than the youth event in group discussions and devotionals. But the EFYSA page explains that, in true EFY fashion, each session will still include a dance, service project, and variety show.

Registration opens May 1 and will fill up quickly, so don’t miss out! To learn more about the events and to register, visit To register for the event in Calgary, click here.
