It’s not often that a group of teens will get together with the express purpose to talk about mental health. But that’s exactly what will happen on Saturday, Jan. 28, when BBYO Connecticut Valley Region chapter hosts “Stomp It Out!” as part of its annual winter conference at the Hartford Hilton.
Today's teens often spend their time navigating the world of adulthood, learning about the world, and themselves, through fast-paced information channels, and ultimately establishing their own unique identity. To support this journey on a global scale, JDC has prioritized supporting Jewish teen life around the world, largely through our global partnership with BBYO, the largest Jewish pluralistic teen movement.
My trip to Israel was a life-changing experience that connected me to my sense of spirituality and Judaism, and also allowed me to from friendships that will last a lifetime. My trip was through BBYO, and it was called ILSI (International Leadership Seminar in Israel).
