BBYO, the pluralistic Jewish youth movement, and DoSomething.org, the nonprofit for young people and social change, teamed up this fall to launch Can-Tribute, a campaign that rallied young people across North America to fight hunger in their local community through a food-collection drive.
Leading up to BBYO International Convention (IC) 2015, Jewish teens around the world are invited to share their innovative ideas for how to engage more Jewish teens in Jewish life by submitting a video application.
To celebrate the conclusion of the “Can-Tribute” campaign launched by BBYO and DoSomething.org, BBYO Baltimore Council and various local organizations hosted a prescreening of the “Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1.”
Colin Silverman, 18, was recently elected Grand Aleph Godol (the highest male position) of BBYO, a 90-year-old Jewish youth movement engaging teens in leadership opportunities and other Jewish experiences.
The BBYO International Conventiont has grown to be a setting for individuals across the Jewish community to learn, lead and work together toward ensuring a strong Jewish future, spearheaded by the next generation.
I am part of a truly amazing and enriching experience at the Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta. I serve on the Teen JAM leadership committee, a task force for J-Serve, the International Day of Jewish Community Service for teens, which is Sunday, April 19, from 1 to 6:30 p.m.
