Over Presidents’ Day Weekend, local teens from BBYO Ohio Northern Region joined more than 3,300 of the Jewish community’s top teen leaders, educators, professionals and philanthropists from across the world in Atlanta for BBYO International Convention (IC) 2015.
The great thing about BBYO is that it creates opportunities for young teens to develop leadership and life skills before many others get that chance. At South Jersey Region BBYO’s IT March 20-12, 2015 at the Jewish Federation Annex — our overnight event for new members — 8th, 9th and newer 10th grade teens developed a set of leadership skills they will hold for the rest of their life.
Approximately 300 teens within metro Atlanta, along with 11,000 Jewish teens in 80 communities across 16 countries, will participate in a day of community service and improvement projects as they take part in J-Serve.
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.
