About Wisconsin Region

BBYO Wisconsin Region is comprised of chapters in Milwaukee and the surrounding community and Madison. We have 6 chapters in Milwaukee, representing over 350 Jewish teens in our area. By becoming a member of Wisconsin 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 couple of weeks. Events are planned by teens, for teens and programming ranges from fun activities like watching the Packers game, brunch or laser tag to more serious programming around Jewish holidays, social justice or leadership development. A parent, advisor or regional staff­ member is always on hand to ensure safety and health.

Fun Fact: Wisco's colors are red and white and our mascot is a cow (go figure). Also, we are the only region in the order to host a weekly Shabbat Oneg every Friday, 3:15pm in the BBYO offices. Be there.

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