YSA Ward FSY Representative

Reports and Resources

YSA Recruitment Poster (available soon)


For the Strength of Youth (FSY) conferences are large-scale, summertime programs for youth turning ages 14 to 18 in the year they plan to attend.

An FSY conference is based on the annual youth theme and is a balanced five-day program that includes activities, devotionals, and classes designed to help strengthen faith in Jesus Christ and provide opportunities for youth to grow spiritually, socially, physically, and intellectually.

YSA Ward FSY Representative Responsibilities

All YSA ward FSY representatives should:

  1. Become familiar with the FSY website and refer leaders and potential YSA counselors to the website to answer any FSY questions.
  2. Encourage all eligible young single adults to apply to serve as FSY counselors.


Counselors will be provided housing, meals, and transportation, as well as a weekly allowance. Counselors are expected to work for four or more weeks during the summer.

  • Encourage all eligible young single adults to apply to be FSY counselors.
    • Counselors have a major influence on the youth and play a pivotal role in the success of FSY conferences. As such, leaders should prayerfully consider who they should encourage to apply as counselors. They should encourage young single adults primarily based on their ability to strengthen youth rather than solely as an opportunity for the young single adult to be strengthened. Young single adults will be responsible for the spiritual and physical safety of the youth. Young single adults who support or promote any teachings, practices, or doctrine contrary to those of the Church or who are currently going through a membership council should not be encouraged to apply to be an FSY counselor.
  • Distribute the YSA recruitment poster to young single adults, wards, and leaders in your stake. The poster will be added to the top of this page soon.
    • The poster may be printed and hung in meetinghouses, emailed to YSA, and/or used in social media posts promoting the opportunity.

Who Do I Work With?

Local leaders are key to the success of FSY. Their role is essential before, during, and after the conference.

  • Work with these leaders as they encourage and invite young single adults to apply to be FSY counselors.
  • Work directly with these leaders to encourage FSY counselor recruitment. Ask them any questions about logistics, policies, and counselor applications.
  • If you are in a YSA stake, work with this leader to encourage FSY counselor recruitment. Follow up with bishopric recommendations and ask them any questions about logistics, policies, and counselor applications.
