United Synagogue Youth (USY) is the Conservative Movement's youth arm. Our local chapter AAUSY (Agudas Achim USY) was founded in order to bring to Austin the joys of USY. The aim of AAUSY, and USY as an organization, is to bring together Judaism, the kehillah, the synagogue, and Jewish teenagers. As a result of this combination, the hope is that Jewish teenagers will grow to become active young adults in their Jewish communities.
AAUSY helps offers teens in grades 9-12 many different experiences on the local, regional, and international level. These range from chapter programming, regional conventions, and international summer programs. AAUSY provides teens with life changing opportunities and friendships that will last a lifetime.
