BBYO recruiting new members
The local chapters of BBYO, the largest Jewish youth organization in the world, have opened fall recruiting for new members. Jewish high school students interested in meeting other Jewish teens or gaining leadership experience are encouraged to join.
San Antonio BBYO has two chapters: Erich Weiss (boys) and Sababa (girls). BBYO teen leaders help plan and lead events and form friendships with Jewish teens in Houston and Austin. Members participate in monthly chapter meetings, a variety of local events, and attend three Regional conventions during the year.
"At the end of the four year experience, seniors reflect that BBYO had a positive impact on their Jewish identity and helped give them the skills to be a better leader and friendships that will last a lifetime," Dylan Ashworth, BBYO city director, said.
A new parent information meeting and new member event will be held on Sunday, Aug. 16 at 1 p.m. at the JCC. For more information about events or membership, contact Dylan Ashworth, San Antonio BBYO city director at (210) 302-6869 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The cost to join is $75 for a year or $ 149 for all four years.
