About International Convention

At BBYO’s annual International Convention (IC), members of BBYO’s high school leadership fraternity and sorority, the Aleph Zadik Aleph (AZA) and B’nai B’rith Girls (BBGs), have the unique opportunity to take part in exciting BBYO programming including hearing from prominent speakers, participating in large-scale service learning opportunities and celebrating an inspiring Shabbat like most have never experienced before. In addition to showcasing spirit and community pride, IC participants take part in the democratic process of furthering the organization’s business agenda and electing AZA & BBG’s next international executive teen leadership. Opportunities to experience IC’s host city, engage with the host community and build lifelong global friendships are constants of every IC.
