Planning to attend? 

Step 1.  Go to the NYE website and review the registration materials.  There is a registration worksheet as well as separate listing for service projects and workshops under the resource tab to assist in your preparation.  Indicate 'Southern New England Conference' as your location and be sure to save your confirmation number. Register online for the event and make your payment of $375 per person. Deadline is June 1

Step 2. Plan transportation for your group.  Some groups will choose to make their own arrangements.  Others may wish to connect with the conference buses, choosing Service or Direct options below.

  • Service Bus leaves from Windsor, CT on Monday, July 20 and Youth will work at North Street Mission in Wooster, OH. Cost is $380 pp. 
  • Direct Bus departs from Framingham, MA on Tuesday, July 21 and cost is $315 pp.

A non-refundable deposit of $100 will reserve your seat on your bus. Note that reservations are on a first-come, first-serve basis.  You will be responsible for your own transportation if buses are full.  Both buses will return to their starting destinations on Sunday, July 26. 

Step 3.  Apply for an NYE Scholarship if you need additional financial support.  We have had generous donations from several sources, so don't let money be an obstacle! Fill out an application form by March 15 to be eligible.
