Middle School Program: BBYO Connect
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.
Every city in the region, as of 2013, has held programming for Jewish middle schoolers. If said programming is not already called 'BBYO Connect', it will be soon. CSR is known across the international order for its program excellence and the same reputation is true with Connect. In the coming years, individuals will see a successful, consistent Connect program in every single city in the region.
