BBYO Youth Group
Involving more Jewish teens in more meaningful experiences!
BBYO is a non-denominational, youth-led organization open to all Jewish teens. It helps Jewish youth develop their leadership potential, embrace a positive Jewish identity, and commit to their own personal development. Under the guidance of advisors and professional staff members, participants engage in democratically functioning small groups known as chapters. Each chapter participates in Jewish living and learning experiences, including community service programs and holiday celebrations. BBYO also offers extensive summer programs around the U.S. and internationally.
Each year, the BBYO program runs September through June. Meetings are held at both the JCC and at members’ homes.
“BBYO has made me who I am. It is where I made my closest friends and allowed me to connect with other Jewish teens who I could share memories and experiences with.” -Jacob Spiegel, Sycamore High School
“BBYO has given me the chance to make life long friends, gain invaluable leadership skills, and be more confident.” -Raquel Levitt, Sycamore High School
