Chartering packets are due by July 15, 2020. This year is the first year that counties can charter new YDSC chapters. Chapters can submit their chartering form through Google Docs. Chapters are allowed to charter up to three counties under a single charter. Due to COVID-19, the Chartering Process will look different this year. We will continue to update this page with details.
