The Kadima Kouncil works with the Youth Director and Youth Advisor to plan programs for the year. They meet once-a-month to generate ideas and plan upcoming programs. The KadimaKouncil is a great place for 6th-8th graders to develop leadership skills and is a great transition into getting more involved with USY.
