SO MUCH #HYPE THIS SPRING!

More than 80,000 Jewish teens around the world are having the time of their lives with BBYO! Here in Toronto, April was a very exciting month for us:

  • More than 60 members attended Election Workshops (click for photos) for a chance to learn about all of our elected leadership positions! Participants were introduced to the responsibilities of each position, learned how to implement their campaign, and got the inside scoop from current leaders about what it's like to be on board!
  • Five hundred teens from across Toronto and York Region participated in a day of community service and improvement projects as they took part in J-Serve, the Global Day of Jewish Youth Service, on April 17, 2016. Participants were surprised by video greetings from three prominent community leaders who shared their thoughts on the importance of an engaged, inclusive and passionate citizenry.

There's lot's more excitement coming up in May. Check out the Upcoming Events section below to learn more.

GOT TICKETS, MERCHANDISE, OR GIFT CERTIFICATES?

Can you help us obtain jewelry, electronics, sports tickets, gift certificates or other merchandise for a silent auction at our annual Celebration of Teen Leadership event next month?

The program will take place on Monday, June 6, 2016 at 7pm at the Goldhar Conference and Celebration Centre in Vaughan and will honour exceptional teen leaders from across Toronto and York Region.

Funds raised through the silent auction will have an immediate impact on teens in our community by enabling BBYO Ontario to grow local membership while keeping fees low and providing scholarship to teens in need.

Please contact Kevin Goodman at 416.398.2004 ext 1 or kgoodman@bbyo.ca if you can help with any sponsorships or donations.
