New England Region

Eastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island

About New England Region

New England Region is comprised of chapters throughout Eastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island. We have chapters in North Shore, Acton, Metrowest, Newton, Sharon, Rhode Island, Brookline, and Merrimack Valley representing over 300 teens in our area. Teens involved 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 two to three weeks 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: Our mascot is Larry the Lobster.
