Give, Connect and Lead with The Associated’s Young Adult Division (YAD)

Welcome to the Young Adult Division (YAD) – the ultimate destination for young Jewish adults who want to make a difference and have fun doing it! YAD inspires community connections, philanthropy and leadership for Jewish community members in their 20’s and 30’s, at every life stage, from singles to partnered to parents.

Whether you’re a Charm City newbie or a Baltimorean through and through, we’ve got you. We’re all about bringing people together over causes that matter, whether that’s delivering food to homebound seniors or picking up trash along the Gwynns Falls. And we don’t stop there – we also offer amazing opportunities to explore your heritage and connect with other Jewish young adults.

Want to walk through the ancient tunnels in Jerusalem? Climb Masada? Float in the Dead Sea? We can make it happen! Or maybe you’re more interested in networking closer to home – we’ve got happy hours in Fed Hill that will make you feel like you’re on top of the world.

We’re also committed to making a real difference in the world. We invest our time, energy and dollars in our local, national and global Jewish community, and we’re always looking for new ways to make a tangible impact. We believe that together, we can change the world.

So what are you waiting for? Join us and be part of a community that’s tackling the challenges of today – and having a blast doing it. Fill out our interest form now and get ready to start living your best life and find your place with us.
