In addition to all of the activities and programs in AZA and BBG, every teen across the world involved in BBYO takes part in the various teen-lead and driven initiatives and campaigns. These initiatives and campaigns act as driving forces behind our movement that motivate each and every Aleph and BBG to make a positive impact both in their local community and around the world. With the support of the leaders of AZA and BBG, every teen is able to take part in our initiatives and campaigns.
