Summer of IMPACT
Responsibility and Passion
The Summer of IMPACT curriculum supports Stand UP, BBYO’s grassroots service, advocacy and philanthropy campaign. Through skills sessions, leadership exercises and peer-led and developed projects teens learn how to lead in a meaningful way and learn skills that can be applied to their experience in school, BBYO and for years to come.
The highlights and benefits of a Summer of IMPACT experience include:
- A taste for college life while living in the university dorms of the host campus.
- Learning in classrooms and unique on campus programming from Hillel at the University of Chicago and University of Maryland, and the Office Of High School Programs at Brandeis University.
- Visiting landmarks and locals’ favorite locations and learning to navigate and live in some of the world’s most exciting cities, making the IMPACT host-city a second home.
- Opportunities to Stand UP for the issues and causes that matter to participants. Guided by talented BBYO staff, teens learn by doing service, advocacy and philanthropy and have new skills they can use at home, and into young adulthood.
