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.
The BBYO International Conventiont has grown to be a setting for individuals across the Jewish community to learn, lead and work together toward ensuring a strong Jewish future, spearheaded by the next generation.
At the BBYO International Convention (IC 2015) this year, held Feb. 12-16, Jay Kohler, volunteer adviser of Rebels AZA #442, was selected out of hundreds of advisers around the country as the Adviser of the Year.
Two Jewish youth groups, BBYO and NFTY, held their annual international conventions Feb. 12-16. This year was different because for the first time these conventions were held in the same place, at the same time. Two international conventions, but together in Atlanta. Without a doubt, this meeting was a litmus test of sorts for the future of the Jewish people.
