IT'S AN EXCITING TIME FOR BBYO!

January was a busy month for our nine chapters across Toronto & York Region:

  • Over 100 members joined us for our annual semi-formal dance, Beauheart Ball. Coordinated by Amanda and Oliver, it was an amazing celebration of BBYO that included dancing, dessert, alumni appearances and the annual Beauheart Procession featuring Regional Board, Chapter President and Beau/Sweetheart walk-ins, as well as a high-energy speech about the region's accomplishments from our Regional Presidents, Hailey & Aaron. Click here to see photos from Beauheart Ball.
  • Our cohort of eleven leaders, the Regional Chair Network, interested in furthering the depth of their involvement, joined together to the further the agenda of the region with portfolios that include Israel Engagement, Ruach (Hebrew for "spirit"), Athletics, Community Engagement and more.

  • We had a blast going Snow Tubing with over 80 middle schoolers on a Sunday afternoon at Chicopee Tube Park! Participants were able to enjoy the day, and began to form meaningful connections with each other that will last a lifetime. Click here to see photos from Snow Tubing.

All said, more than 80,000 Jewish teens around the world are having the time of their lives with BBYO - and we're seeking new teens to join us! Check out our Upcoming Events below and spread the word to your friends!
