The International Teen Leadership Network (ILN) is composed of Alephs and B'nai B'rith Girls from across the Order who have dedicated themselves to the advancement of our movement and the Jewish people. ILN chairpeople are chosen on a yearly basis. Each ILN leader is tasked with certain duties related to our movement's five priorities.

The ILN is a grand assembly of perspectives, creativity and talent from across the International Order that is focused on our Movement’s priorities. It strives to carry out our mission of building more meaningful Jewish experiences for more Jewish teens – everywhere, anywhere.

The ILN is the engine of our Movement; propelling our campaigns, initiatives and growth, and making sure everything we do makes an impact where it counts most: our chapters. The ILN will include our standing committees as well as International Convention Steering, Summer Program Coordinators, Issue Summit Coordinators and the Global Networking Committee. With greater cohesion and communication across the team, we’ll be able to mobilize more members in more places throughout the year.

S'ganim Committee - Program Excellence

About the Committee

The S’ganim Committee dives into the Movement priority of Program Excellence. Programming is the core of what we do in AZA and BBG. This team creates innovative ways to incorporate AZA and BBG’s Folds, the Menorah Pledge and Cardinal Principles, AZAA/BBGG, MBA, WOW programming, and the Educational Framework into Chapter, Council, and Regional program culture. The Committee explores ways to share programming, develop planning and evaluation processes, and coach chapters on embracing the Guide to Program Excellence.

Global Networking Committee

About the Committee

Members of the Global Networking Committee (GNC) works to represent their home communities (Country and/or Hub and/or Region and/or Council) in a Committee comprised of representatives from every BBYO community and partner Jewish teen community around the world. Additionally, each member is responsible for raising globalization awareness in his or her home community. Committee projects range from developing relationships in established partner or new communities to strengthening the priorities of our Order from a global perspective. The GNC also has a role in working with international delegations at International Convention 2014. GNC members should be prepared to learn a lot while on the GNC and subsequently teach their community about what they have learned from their international peers.
