The Center for Youth Voice conferences are open to students of all backgrounds, opinions, and regions of the state, and we meet 100% of demonstrated financial need to those that register by the deadline. If you are committed to attending, we are committed to getting you there.


The YMCA of the North accepts a number of different income and financial support verification documents which you can review here. For Center for Youth Voice conferences, the YMCA also accepts an Educational Benefits award letter as an income verification document when applying for financial assistance. Once you’ve submitted your application, you will hear back confirming the amount of your financial assistance award within 3-5 business days, and likely within 48 hours.


If your initial award does not meet your needs, please reach out to the Program Operations Coordinator in our State Office with a request for an ‘exception’. 

If you have any issues or questions regarding the Online Application for Financial Assistance, please reach out to the Customer Service Center:
