BBYO is not your typical youth group. It’s a worldwide teen movement, bringing together high school students from all over the globe, with all types of interests and from all types of Jewish backgrounds. Your BBYO experience can be whatever you want it to be. Looking to make new friends? Need to improve your leadership skills? Want to make a difference in the world? Love to play sports? Enjoy traveling to new places and meeting new people? Then you’ve come to the right place.
This summer was a special one for members of South Jersey Region BBYO, as many attended programs held in various parts of the country. From leadership training conventions to community service projects, teens came home wanting to make a difference in BBYO and beyond.
On the heels of a successful collaboration with two prominent Jewish camps in Montreal, BBYO is seeking to significantly expand its year-round AZA and BBG programs, while preparing for the launch of its leadership training program at Camp B’nai B’rith of Montreal in the summer of 2018.
Max Alter, from Beachwood High School, and Marni Cantor, from Solon High School, were elected presidents at the Ohio Northern Region BBYO regional conference May 18-22 at Bertram Inn and Conference Center in Aurora.
May was a big month for South Jersey Region BBYO, as the programming year started to wind down. The region held its annual “State of the Region” at the JCC on Sunday, May 7. The 56th Regional Board delivered speeches summarizing the year, highlighting the successes and shortcomings of each position. Many awards were given out throughout the course of the night, and many Alephs and BBGs took one home.
