What is Dayton BBYO?

To me, BBYO means "More Jewish Teens, More Meaningful Jewish Experiences" says Adam Guadalupe, Vice President of Membership for Weprin Kadima Chapter. 'Jewish teens can be doing anything from competing with regional chapters in a basketball tournament, to volunteering at a local homeless shelter, to going out to eat. We find meaning and value in congregating with fellow Jews and discovering more about ourselves and each other. BBYO is about the experience of sharing Judaism with other youth from the entire city and the KIO region. We can all get together and be part of a Jewish community".
According to Deborah Liberman, Vice President of Membership for Hatikvah Chapter, "BBYO has helped me connect with Judaism and to meet other Jewish teens in the area. Dayton BBYO has created a group of people that I can always rely on for advice and have fun. I have a sense of belonging in my community. Not only will you make life-long friends, but you will become involved in your community. You never know how BBYO is, until you try it! Join BBYO, it was the best decision I made".
