BBYO is a youth-led, worldwide organization that provides opportunities for Jewish youth to develop their leadership potential, a positive Jewish identity, and commitment to their personal development. The youth participate in democratically functioning small groups under the guidance of adult advisors and professional staff.
BBYO is the largest Jewish youth organization in the world. We number over 20,000 Jewish youth worldwide, including chapters throughout the United States, Canada, Great Britain, the European continent, Australia, and New Zealand, and the State of Israel.
BBYO helps Jewish youth to achieve personal growth according to their individual capacities so that they might lead personally satisfying and socially productive lives in the Jewish Community and the larger community of which they are a part. The Greater Jersey Hudson River Region is one of the largest regions in the world, located in Central and Northern New Jersey as well as sections of New York.
