Event Details

Come join the Big Apple Region Community as we celebrate the beginning of the school year and the start of a new leadership journey! We will begin with a Community Havdallah ceremony, directly followed by the Regional Training Leadership Institute overnight. RLTI will train, challenge, inform, and energize our teen leaders and prepare them to be strong and influential leaders in BBYO and beyond!

Participation is mandatory for all teens who have been elected into Chapter or Regional Leadership roles, and highly encouraged for all general members.

We will serve a dessert reception on Saturday evening, as well as breakfast and lunch on Sunday. Sleeping arrangements will be separated by AZA and BBG; bring your own sleeping bag and/or air mattress!

Please be in contact with Brittany Kahn at [email protected] with any questions!

Cost: $50.00


Who: All Big Apple Region elected leaders, as well as any general members interested in boosting their leadership skills and knowledge.

Am I allowed to drive myself to this event?

I usually carry or take Medications. Should I pack them?
Yes, teens are responsible for their own medications and should take them when they are scheduled to. Sharing medications between participants, even over-the-counter medications, is prohibited and may result in disciplinary actions.

What are the rules and procedures for the program?
A full rules and procedures session will be run by staff after Havdallah ceremonies, including policies for behavior as well as safety and emergency procedures training. The BBYO Member Code of Conduct applies through the duration of the program.
