BBYO Pacific Western Region is comprised of chapters along Southern California. We have 14 chapters all over Southern California, representing over 400 Jewish teens in our area. By becoming a member of Pacific Western Region, teens are afforded the opportunity to experience local programming in their communities, regional programming such as dances, community service days, sports events, and weekend-long conventions, and international programming at large scale conferences and BBYO Summer Experiences.

Our chapters hold events most weekends at locations around the region. Events are planned by teens for teens and programming ranges from fun activities like laser tag to more serious programming around social justice, brotherhood and sisterhood, advocacy, and leadership development. A parent, advisor, or regional staff¬ member is always on hand to ensure safety and health.

Fun Fact: PWR's spirit color is purple and our mascot is the wolf. We are the PWR Wolf Pack!

Through youth-lead and staff-supported programs, Pacific Western Region gives our members opportunities to develop leadership skills and positively affect their communities, the world, and themselves. We constantly strive to provide more Jewish teens with more meaningful Jewish experiences each and every day, so that they may become the future Jewish leaders in their communities and in the Jewish world at large.

Interested in volunteering with BBYO?
BBYO offers a variety of volunteer opportunities for adults in the Jewish Community. Do you want to make a significant impact in the lives of Jewish teens? Become a BBYO advisor, and help a generation of Jewish teens to reach their full potential!

Advisors work in partnership with professional staff to supervise and guide AZA and BBG chapters. Advisors serve as positive Jewish role models, exploring challenges and seeking solutions with (not for) the teens, and encouraging BBYO members to strive for excellence. With the guidance of advisor leadership, BBYO teens have the opportunity to grow into dynamic, engaged young Jewish leaders.
