What is BBYO?
BBYO is the leading pluralistic Jewish teen movement aspiring to involve more Jewish teens in more meaningful Jewish experiences. For almost 90 years, AZA and BBG chapters in communities around the world have been providing exceptional leadership programs and identity enrichment experiences, shaping the confidence and character of 250,000 alumni who are among the most prominent figures in business, politics, academia, the arts and Jewish communal life.
BBYO's latest offering, BBYO Connect, seeks to engage 6th, 7th and 8th graders in experiences in a safe, social environment that bridges the gap between Bar/Bat Mitzvah and AZA and BBG. Independent of B’nai B’rith since 2002, BBYO’s network of Jewish teens, alumni, parents, volunteers and philanthropists now serves as the Jewish community’s most valuable platform for delivering to the post Bar/Bat Mitzvah teen audience fun, meaningful and affordable experiences. With year-round activities in hundreds of local communities and inspiring world-wide travel experiences, BBYO’s broad program menu enables teens to explore areas of leadership, service, civic engagement, Israel education and Jewish values.
