Hi Friend,

Important! Event Preferencing: The first round for event preferences closes today at noon ET. You will not be able to edit your preferences after this time. If you missed the first round of event preferences, log in after 5 p.m. ET on Friday, September 27 to register or waitlist for your first event.

Only event-ready teams can select their event preferences, so make sure your team’s lead mentors are assigned, their profiles are completed, and that they are screened (Only U.S. and Canadian teams are required to complete screening). For more information about event preferencing please visit our FAQ, and for instructions please see our user guide

Lead mentors, if your screening is still in process or you have questions about the status, please contact our YPP department by calling 1-800-871-8326, extension 250.
