About Lonestar Region

BBYO Lonestar Region (LSR) is comprised of chapters in Houston, Austin, College Station, and San Antonio. We have 9 chapters Houston, 3 in Austin, 2 in San Antonio and 1 in College Station, representing over 1090 Jewish teens in our area. By becoming a member of Lonestar 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 week at locations around the region. Events are planned by teens for teens and programming ranges from fun activities like ice skating and sleepovers, 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:  LSR's spirit colors are red, white and blue and our mascot is the armadillo!

Through youth-led and staff-supported programs, BBYO Lonestar 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.
