For a century, BBYO has been engaging Jewish teens and providing them with the tools to embrace their identities, sharpen their leadership skills, and create lasting friendships with their peers. And at this historic moment, BBYO is coming together to celebrate and strengthen the role parents play in our thriving organization—and create opportunities for parents to get more involved in our Movement. Below you can explore exclusive resources and special opportunities to deepen connections with your teen and other BBYO parents throughout the year.
Supporting Teen Mental Health: Monthly Virtual Events
Throughout the year, the Parent Advisory Council hosts a series of events and seminars for the greater BBYO parent community. Parents and experts share their insights on how to best support teens, on topics ranging from teen wellness and stress management to transitioning from high school to college and getting better sleep.

Parent Advisory Council
Help strengthen and enrich BBYO's parent community by joining the Parent Advisory Council. Through the Council, parents of BBYO teens and recent alumni offer guidance, leadership, and support to enhance the BBYO parent experience through programming, community-building, and exclusive opportunities and resources.
Make a Gift to BBYO
Our vibrant and growing Movement is made possible by program and membership fees, which cover approximately 50% of our costs, and also through generous donations from BBYO parents, alumni, and supporters who help to cover the other 50% of our needs. Philanthropy is vital to ensuring that the full participation in BBYO is accessible for all families, keeping program fees low and directly funding scholarship, staffing, and high-quality experiences directly in our local BBYO communities. A gift to your teen’s region gives more Jewish teens the opportunity to find their home in BBYO. Click here to donate.
Become a Parent Advisor
Parents have a unique opportunity to become volunteer chapter advisors. Advisors are a crucial part of the BBYO experience, serving as adult guides for teen members to help create meaningful and successful programs for the whole chapter to enjoy.
