Advisor of the Month
David has been an advisor since 2009
From Glendale, he attended Nicolet High School and was active in BBYO as a member of Nivayim AZA. He graduated from UW-Madison and recently earned a master of sports administration from Ohio University. In his non-BBYO life, he is the director of member services for the Wisconsin State Golf Association.
In addition to his role with Solomon, David has staffed two trips with Wisconsin Region to Panim el Panim, a BBYO program in Washington, D.C.
David is one of those advisors that goes above and beyond. He is at all his chapter’s programs. But he also attends all conventions (in entirety and sometimes as a bus rider), he attends other regional programs (like J-Serve Day or the Walk for Israel) and is always willing to help out however is needed. He even coordinates Regional Lives.
When asked what his favorite part of being an advisor is, David says " I enjoy being involved with BBYO because of the leadership opportunities it offers to the teens. It is amazing to see the teens begin as inexperienced 8th graders and graduate as true leaders. It has been fun to stay in touch with the teens that have graduated from BBYO and follow their success as they move on to college."
David's boys adore him, as do the BBYO regional staff.
"David simply put is one of the greatest assets that our chapter has. He is knowledgeable, always ready to help and has a genuine love for the chapter and its members. Without him, the chapter would not be even close to what it is today. Thanks for everything that you do Dcohn!" - Matt Levy
"David Cohn is an awesome advisor. It amazes me that he has been our advisor for so many years, and it shows his dedication and hard work to Solomon. We love you Dcohn!" - Jesse Honigberg
"David's always there for everyone when we need him. He's always fun to talk to and really cares about all of us in this chapter" - Rafi Barash
