Since their establishment in 1924 and 1944, the Aleph Zadik Aleph (AZA) and B’nai B’rith Girls (BBG) have served as BBYO’s core teen leaders. With more than 600 chapters worldwide, AZA and BBG, rooted in brotherhood and sisterhood, provide a place for teens to build a movement capable of creating change surrounding today’s critical issues all while learning important skills such as public speaking, event planning, and project management. AZA and BBG teens also explore their Jewish identities on a deeply personal level while developing lifelong friendships and having fun. Based on a local network of teen-led, democratically functioning chapters partnered with opportunities for international travel, conventions and summer experiences, AZA and BBG’s unique programming convenes and connects Jewish teens of all backgrounds who will become inspired to live Jewish lives while making a difference in the world.
BBYO is the leading pluralistic teen movement aspiring to involve more Jewish teens in more meaningful Jewish experiences. For 90 years, BBYO has provided exceptional identity enrichment and leadership development experiences for hundreds of thousands of Jewish teens. For more information about BBYO, visit www.bbyo.org
