BBYO


BBYO is the leading pluralistic teen movement aspiring to involve more Jewish teens in more meaningful Jewish experiences. For 90 years, BBYO has provided exceptional identity enrichment and leadership development experiences for hundreds of thousands of Jewish teens.

For more information about Dayton BBYO, please contact BBYO City Director, Josh Alpert at dayton@bbyo.org or JCC Program Manager, Meryl Hattenbach at 937-401-1550.

Active Leadership

BBYO’s international leadership model, AZA and BBG, prides itself on fun and meaningful teen-led programming, its responsibility to the global Jewish community, an unwavering commitment to the State of Israel, and its dedication to tikkun olam – repairing the world.

Jewish Identity

BBYO encourages Jewish teens to find meaning in Judaism and to develop their own Jewish identities. Committed to a pluralistic experience, BBYO attempts to accommodate and provide a comfortable environment across the halachic (Jewish law) spectrum.

Inclusivity

BBYO offers safe and welcoming opportunities for learning and growth to all Jewish teens regardless of background, denominational affiliation, sexual orientation and socio-economic status. For 90 years, the Aleph Zadik Aleph (AZA), BBYO’s high school leadership program and fraternity for young men, and the B’nai B’rith Girls (BBG), AZA’s sister program for young women, have helped shape the lives of its teen members.  They are proud to be a part of the legacy of inspired Jewish leaders and a network of more than 400,000 alumni, many of whom are leaders in the fields of business, politics, academia, the arts and Jewish communal life, and attribute much of their success to the experiences they had in BBYO. As your teen looks forward to high school, we invite them to join BBYO, where they will find a great group of friends and plenty of opportunities to help build their character, confidence and social calendar?

Why AZA and BBG?

We “get” the stress that comes with starting high school, getting into college and finding a place where a teen can be a teen. We provide opportunities for your teen to have fun in a comfortable, inclusive environment where lifelong friendships are formed, leadership skills are developed and Jewish identity and values are nurtured. BBYO is a completely customizable experience. Our renowned leadership offerings, AZA and BBG, empower teens to create and lead their own programs. We also offer opportunities to play sports, travel, do community service, and learn more about Jewish heritage. Regardless of the BBYO path your teen chooses, they’ll graduate with experiences that will help set them apart on college applications, provide them with an international network of Jewish friends and prepare them for the real world.
