Chapter Advisors are volunteers committed to helping teen members, and their chapters, reach their full potential.
BBYO empowers advisors to work in partnership with professional staff to supervise and guide AZA and BBG chapters. Advisors serve as positive Jewish role models by sharing observations with the youth, exploring challenges and seeking solutions with (not for) the teens, and encouraging BBYO members to strive for excellence. Advisors are there to advise, while the teens are there to lead the chapters. Advisors support BBYO teens, which are ultimately responsible for chapter programming with their peers. Under the guidance of advisor leadership, BBYO teens have the opportunity to grow into dynamic, engaged young Jewish leaders.
Becoming a BBYO advisor is an exciting and rewarding volunteer opportunity that will give you the chance to be part of the world’s leading Jewish teen movement, and make a direct impact in shaping the future of the Jewish community! Did you know?
