BBYO - The B’nai B’rith Youth Organization:
BBYO is the largest Jewish youth group in the world; with the first chapter originating in Omaha in 1924. Omaha hosts two AZA (aleph zadik aleph) chapters for guys, and two BBG (b’nai b’rith girls) chapters for girls. All four chapters meet every Tuesday night at 6 pm in the JCC Teen Lounge.
Through several programming initiatives called “folds,” BBYO members are able to learn invaluable leadership skills, participate in community service activities, travel, and meet friends locally, regionally, and nationally.
BBYO brings Jewish teens extraordinary chapter programs that promote brotherhood and sisterhood, Judaism, creativity, social awareness, and of course, fun!
Programs include themed dances; regional conventions with Jewish teens from St. Louis, Kansas City, and Minnesota, overnight Shabbat programs, the opportunity to hold board positions, implement change, and develop leadership skills. Each chapter has at least one adult volunteer advisor to help teens exercise their leadership abilities, and to encourage meaningful and fun experiences.
BBYO welcomes all Jewish teens entering grades 9-12, and enrollment is open year-round.
• 1-year Membership: $75
• 4-year Membership: $150
