About North Texas-Oklahoma Region 

North Texas-Oklahoma Region, known as NTO, consists of three major cities: Dallas, Fort Worth, and Tulsa. There are two chapters (one AZA and one BBG) in Fort Worth, two chapters (one AZA and one BBG) in Tulsa, and twelve chapters (six AZA and six BBG) in Dallas.

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.

Through youth-led and staff-supported programs, BBYO NTO 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: NTO’s mascot is a penguin and our regional colors are maroon and gray.
