FSY is designed to help youth have fun as they apply the gospel in all aspects of their life. Youth participate in five days of devotionals, classes, and activities that aim to help strengthen their faith in Jesus Christ and feel joy and belonging as they live the gospel.

Young people are connecting with others from across the region with games and social activities.  FSY also includes workshops on wide ranging topics and a chance to hear inspiring messages from Church leaders including members of the Pacific Area Presidency and their wives.

FSY conference proceedings are being posted daily on Facebook including photos of activities and videos of youth sharing their experiences.
