Extending from the Chicago Bean to the St. Louis Arch to Mount Rushmore and so much more, the Midwest is a region known for its hospitality, diversity, and food. Our region includes the states of Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin and the provinces of Manitoba and Ontario — an expansive collection of great cities and historical landmarks, large and small, new and old.
The Midwest is where it all began for YJA. Since 1991, when Chicago was the epicentre of the organization, the region has continued to grow and evolve — we have now been the host of three YJA conventions (most recently in 2018) and include 17 Sanghs and five College Chapters. The Midwest is proud to regularly host a variety of exciting events and activities for our youth — from national dinners to community service engagements to retreats — and we are incredibly fortunate to have a great relationship with our Sanghs as well! For all these reasons and more, it’s no surprise that we’re known as the #MidBEST!
We’re always looking to add new members to our YJA family, so if you’re interested in learning more or have any questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to email Saloni Nahar at [email protected]!
