Our purpose is to help youth and young adults understand and rely on the teachings and atonement of Jesus Christ, qualify for the blessings of the temple, and prepare themselves, their families and others for eternal life with their Father in Heaven.

What is BYS?

Originating in 1999 the Boise Youth Spectacular (BYS) is a 3 day event that utilizes local facilities and volunteers to produce a social, educational, and spiritual youth conference. Youth are separated into groups with trained young adult counselors. Together they attend workshops, firesides, eat meals, dance and enjoy musical events.
