After a long plane ride to Baltimore, Maryland, I arrived at the BWI airport and was greeted by staff members of the BBYO program that I was attending, Impact:DC. This program’s goal was to teach Jewish youth from around the world about issues in the Washington, DC community and ways to combat them.
Today, BBYO is a welcoming home to the more than 40,000 Jewish teens who take part in programming around the world. Participants find a safe place where they can be themselves, learn, lead, serve and have fun with friends who become brothers and sisters.
Youth movement BBYO, campus group Hillel International and Moishe House, the global network of residences that build community for Jews in their 20s, announced last week that they have created the “Talent Alliance,” a shared mechanism for developing and promoting their 780 full-time employees.
