About Great Midwest Region
Great Midwest Region spans across Illinois, primarily in and around the Chicagoland area; including Chicago, Buffalo Grove, Deerfield, Northbrook, Skokie, Wilmette, Naperville, Homewood/Flossmoor, and our newest community in Champaign!
Through youth-led and staff-supported programs, BBYO Great Midwest 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.
Fun Fact: The Great Midwest Region’s mascot is Superman. Our colors are red, yellow & blue. Our region motto is: “Truth. Justice. & GMR”
