SPRING LEADERSHIP PROGRAMS

For decades, BBYO’s exceptional leadership experiences have provided Jewish teen leaders around the world with a space to develop their leadership skills, explore their Jewish identities, and solidify their roles as global citizens. Now more than ever, teens crave new opportunities to build relationships, educate themselves about the potential they possess, and learn how to mobilize and take action.

Join us for one of two distinguished virtual leadership experiences offered to Alephs and BBGs this spring: Elevating AZA: Building the Future of the Aleph Zadik Aleph, and the Anita M. Perlman BBG Leadership Academy.

ELEVATING AZA: BUILDING THE FUTURE OF THE ALEPH ZADIK ALEPH
Grades: 9-12

Designed for Alephs in 9th-12th grades, Elevating AZA will teach participants how to strengthen AZA at an individual and international level, and help build and expand our worldwide Movement. Topics that will be covered in the program include developing leadership skills, learning collaboration and teamwork techniques, and exploring how Alephs can make an impact in our global brotherhood.

“Elevating AZA was an amazing opportunity for me to learn successful retainment and recruitment strategies from around the Order. It was really interesting hearing from our guest speakers and then brainstorming what we could take away from it and add to our communities. The experience helped me gain a larger network of people to reach out to, and gave me the skills to lead my chapter as Godol (president) the following term.”

ANITA M. PERLMAN BBG LEADERSHIP ACADEMY
Grades: 10-12

The Anita M. Perlman BBG Leadership Academy is a unique opportunity for BBGs in 10th-12th grades to engage with business leaders and key influencers across the Jewish world. BBGs will learn skills applicable beyond their BBG experience, focusing on strengths development, communication, self-advocacy, and personal brand building. Participants will have an opportunity to deepen their learning and growth by exploring topics such as building resilience in the face of change, defining success, and combatting imposter syndrome.

“Throughout my time in the BBG Leadership Academy this summer, I had an incredible opportunity to explore what drives me and my passions. I also learned how to advocate for others (and myself) in new, different, and challenging situations. Through the amazing facilitators and inspirational speakers I was able to develop lifelong skills, such as writing a bio and a resume, and really understand my personal values and principles. I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to advance my learning and personal growth.”
