New England Region AZA, BBG, and BBYO chapters, offer a time-tested model for leadership development. Teens are given real responsibilities and develop leadership skills that relate to their everyday lives. By practicing public speaking, program planning, community organizing and managing people, BBYO teens build skills that not only make them more confident and capable of navigating the challenging teen years, but also prepare them to make positive contributions to the world around them as adults.
Chapters hold regular programming for their members, participate in service and advocacy project across the community, and enjoy on a daily basis the brotherhood and sisterhood components of AZA and BBG.
AZA and BBG chapters are full of spirit and chapter pride. It is common for chapters to have mascots and colors that members proudly wear to chapter, region, and international programs. Competitions are held at conventions for which chapter has the most chapter spirit.
