It’s hard to believe the summer is almost over. As we navigated this new normal throughout the past few months, one thing is certain: our teens had an excellent experience at our summer programs. With our wide breadth of offerings, teens got the chance to learn leadership skills, develop friendships, plan programs for their peers, engage with guest speakers, and of course, have fun! I just spent my ninth summer at a BBYO program, and I have never felt more inspired by our participants and the future of our Movement.
The momentum built over the summer will take us right into the start of the year. Regions are planning exciting kickoff events in your communities ranging from yacht parties to dances at exclusive venues -- programs that your teens definitely won't want to miss! Kickoffs will be followed by local chapter programming, giving teens a taste of what BBYO has to offer on a local level.
So, what’s next for you as a parent? We’d love your support and engagement with us! Be sure to check your emails for updates regarding kickoff events offered in your area, support your teens as they attend programming, and check out your local BBYO Near You page for more information. We are also running a parent referral campaign through the end of August. Know a Jewish teen who should join BBYO? Tell us who they are, and we’ll reach out to them to make sure they know about all the incredible programs happening in their area.
I can't wait to see all the incredible things our teens accomplish this year and know that the possibilities are endless with your support!
All the best,
