Dear ZAGBA Community,

As we mentioned to you at our Navroze function, as part of the 12th World Zoroastrian Congress, the Zoroastrian Youth Across Borders (ZYAB), is sponsoring about 26 youth from across the world between the ages of 18-28 years to come and attend the conference and give them the opportunity to visit some of the big cities on the east coast where we have our Zoroastrian Associations. The plan is that after the conference, the youth will travel to Washington, DC, and Philadelphia and then arrive in Boston. The local Zoroastrian associations are going to be hosting the youth, and ZAGBA will also be doing the same.

A committee has been formed to work on accommodations, transportation, food and planning for how to organize this.

How You Can Help

Please open the following link to indicate your interest in volunteering and/or providing financial support: https://tinyurl.com/zyab2022. We request your response by Friday, May 27, for planning purposes.

VolunteersWe need our community to volunteer to accompany the youth as they tour the Boston/Cambridge area. The youth will be arriving in Boston on Wednesday, July 13th later evening and will depart on Saturday, July 16th in the morning.

Financial HelpWe estimate the cost of hosting this large group is around $7,000. The ZAGBA Board has agreed to fund half the expenses and the balance we hope to get from our community.

We are very excited to make this a success and thank our community for your continued support.
