At Impact: Boston at Brandeis University, Jewish teens from all over North America come together to form a diverse community, experience life on a college campus, become better leaders and make an impact in the city of Boston! Want to learn more? Click here!
They partner up with local nonprofit organizations to learn about their mission and how they work. Throughout the program, they volunteer with their partner organization focusing on causes like developmental disabilities, homelessness and disadvantaged teens, forming relationships with the community and doing direct service (and earning community service hours!). Teens who go to Impact: Boston will come home with a better understanding of the issues facing society and ways to use their Jewish values when they tackle them at home. They’ll be proud of the impact they made and able to tell their friends all about the fun trips to exciting Boston sites like Fenway Park, Harvard Square, Fanieul Hall and Quincy Market!

BBYO’s on Campus Summer Experiences are open to all Jewish teens – not just BBYO members! These programs are planned in partnership with another organization – either a university, a university Hillel or Summer Discovery – to provide the most college-like experience possible, while also including Jewish values and learning in the mix.
