BBYO’s International Convention comes once a year and a more exciting time in the BBYO calendar cannot be found. For the teens of South Jersey Region BBYO, the impact of International Convention could be felt immediately on the very first day, even the first hour.
Toledo BBYO has had a busy, exciting and fun start to 2016. The year began with Regional Exec v2, where the executive boards of B'not Shalom and BSN received training from the Regional Board and then had time to plan out calendars for the rest of the spring. On Sunday, January 24, both chapters worked together to host a Murder Mystery program at the Baders' home. To earn a clue, the teens had to participate in team building activities, BBYO trivia and finally a dance off.
All of a sudden I heard someone shout out an expletive. As one of the few adults in the room, I wasn’t sure how to react. Do I turn around to see who did it? Do I ignore it? Luckily, the 300 teenagers I was surrounded by in the room knew exactly what to do – nothing.
Forty-one teens from BBYO's North Florida Region (spanning Orlando, Tampa, Jacksonville, Sarasota and Naples) joined more than 4,000 teen leaders, educators, professionals and philanthropists from 48 states and 27 countries for BBYO's International Convention (IC) in Baltimore from Feb. 11 to Feb. 15
