Frequently Asked Questions
1. How do I or my teen register to participate in the 2022 March of the Living program?
Participants will need to apply HERE. Spots will be limited this year so we encourage each student to complete their application and sign up for an interview in a timely manner.
2. Will sessions be held in person?
We will continue to assess the situation each month, but we will begin virtually in December. We are planning for some immersive physically distanced and safe experiences later on in the calendar year.

The application fee is $180. This will be refundable until participants are accepted into the program (Please note that any credit card or e-check fees will not be refundable).

We hope to be able to travel in 2022 but we do not have all the information yet in order to determine if travel will be possible for our community. If we are not able to travel, we will continue to educate about the Holocaust and Israel advocacy within the Miami teen community as we do each and every year.

Every year, our goal is for March to gainupstander, and this year is no different.
