Your Role as a BBYO Parent
BBYO, the world's leading trans-denominational Jewish youth movement, has been helping Jewish parents raise confident, engaged, well-prepared teenagers for more than 80 years. How? By providing safe and enriching programs that the teens design themselves, fostering independent thinking and leadership abilities.
BBYO offers fun activities and meaningful involvement in a Jewish environment, providing teens with enriching Jewish experiences that encourage them to determine for themselves what being a Jew means. Teens who participate in BBYO develop leadership skills and learn the importance of community, thus preparing them for college and other adult endeavors.
BBYO parents are encouraged to GET INVOLVED and learn about your child's BBYO experience. How can you get involved?
*Encourage your teen to attend chapter meetings, functions, and regional programs and to get involved.
*Help provide transportation when and where necessary.
*Open your home for a BBYO program. If you do have a program at your home, please be sure you will be home the during the whole program.
*Volunteer to chaperone chapter or regional programs. Contact the regional office for specific dates.
