About Michigan Region

Our Facebook Page

Welcome to BBYO-Michigan Region’s website! Here you’ll find all the information you need to get involved in BBYO here in Michigan and across the country. You can find out about upcoming events, chapters, BBYO Connect (our middle school program) and much more! You can always contact the BBYO office if you have questions or want to join: 248-432-5684.

Events are planned by teens, for teens and programming ranges from fun activities like ice skating and camping overnights, to communal Shabbat celebrations and leadership trainings. A parent, advisor, or regional staff­ member is always on hand to ensure safety and health.

Fun Fact: Michigan’s mascot used to be the Pillsbury Dough Boy until it was voted to change it 3 years ago to the Tiger.

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