About Connecticut Valley
Connecticut Valley Region is comprised of chapters throughout Connecticut and western Massachusetts. We have chapters in Stamford, Greenwich, Fairfield, Woodbridge, Madison, New London, Cheshire, West Hartford, Ridgefield, Southbury, and Springfield, MA representing over 800 Jewish teens in our area. By becoming a member of Connecticut Valley Region, teens are afforded the opportunity to experience local programming in their communities, regional programming such as dances, community service days, sports events, and weekend-long conventions, and international programming at large scale conferences and BBYO Summer Experiences.
Our chapters hold events every other week at locations around the region. Events are planned by teens, for teens, and programming ranges from fun activities like bowling and making s’mores over a bonfire, to more serious programming around social justice or leadership development. A parent, advisor, or regional staff member is always on hand to ensure safety and health.
Fun Fact: CVRs colors are blue and yellow and our mascot is a goat!
Through youth-led and staff-supported programs, BBYO Connecticut Valley Region gives our members opportunities to develop leadership skills and positively affect their communities, the world, and themselves. We constantly strive to provide more Jewish teens with more meaningful Jewish experiences each and every day, so that they may become the future Jewish leaders in their communities and in the Jewish world at large.
