Middle School Programs: BBYO Connect

image

BBYO Connect is the BBYO experience made just for 6th, 7th and 8th grade students offering social and meaningful experiences that will serve as a gateway to continued involvement in Jewish life.

BBYO Connect offers teens a variety of experiences to help bridge the gap between immediate pre- and post- Bar/Bat Mitzvah and High School programs. The purpose is to provide middle school students with a positive experience in which they can get together with camp, school, and synagogue friends, as well as meet new friends. BBYO Connect allows middle school students to begin experiencing the privileges and obligations of being a member of the Jewish and general communities. Focused on service, social, and Judaic programming, BBYO Connect builds a network of teens across North America at a critical age when middle school students begin to strengthen their identities, form social circles and prepare for high school and beyond.

BBYO NoVA offers two branches of middle school programming: JCC Partner Programs occur once a month and are open to all middle school students living in Northern Virginia. Please note your family does not have to have a JCC Membership in order to participate. BBYO Connect Chapter Programs are run by the current BBYO teen leaders and give middle school students a chance to try out BBYO events. Each chapter will host a BBYO Connect event which may be restricted to those middle school students living in the geographical area of their chapter.
