BBYO-JCC Partnership

BBYO is a proud partner with JCC Chicago. As part of the partnership, many BBYO programs occur at JCC facilities and BBYO collaborates with JCC on teen programming whenever possible. The teen years are all about being with friends, so send your kids to the “J.” They can get together with friends they may not go to school with and extend their social circle. From intramural sports to Maccabi to social action activities to camping to Teen Adventure Trips and open lounge nights, there’s something fun waiting for your teenagers and pre-teens at JCC Chicago.
