Go Beyond

Beyond is BBYO’s newest Israel experience, a gap year program based in Israel that gives Jewish young adults the chance to broaden their worldview before entering college. Beyond participants will gain valuable life skills, earn academic credit, explore their Jewish identity, deepen their understanding of Israeli society and chart a course toward a life of meaning and purpose.

Visit the Beyond website to learn more.

Advisor Leadership Training Conference

On December 14-16, 40 BBYO advisors from across North America gathered in Chicago for BBYO’s annual Advisor Leadership Training Conference (ALTC). Participants came together to share best practices, learn about all of BBYO’s programs and initiatives and be trained on how to help their chapters at home strive for all around chapter excellence.

Tamara Stolle, BBYO Wisconsin Region advisor, shared her feelings about ALTC: “I am proud to continue my work with BBYO, a movement that values what I have to offer and is here to help support my passion to advise.”

BBYO Wisconsin Region is always welcoming friends and alumni of BBYO to be advisors. Contact your to learn more.
