BBYO Connect is the BBYO experience made just for 6th, 7th and 8th grade students offering social and meaningful experiences that will serve as a gateway to continued involvement in Jewish life.
BBYO Connect offers teens a variety of experiences to help bridge the gap between immediate pre- and post- Bar/Bat Mitzvah and high school programs. The purpose is to provide middle school students with a positive experience in which they can get together with camp, school, and synagogue friends, as well as meet new friends. BBYO Connect allows middle school students to begin experiencing the privileges and obligations of being a member of the Jewish and general communities. Focused on service, social, and Judaic programming, BBYO Connect builds a network of teens across North America at a critical age when middle school students begin to strengthen their identities, form social circles and prepare for high school and beyond.

Engaging with AZA and BBG Members
The BBYO Connect experience utilizes participation and leadership from AZA and BBG members. By taking ownership over the local BBYO Connect experience, these members serve as an example of proud Jewish teenagers and positive role models to a younger audience, enabling middle school students to envision their continued participation in Jewish life through high school and beyond.
