BBYO is the world's largest pluralistic Jewish youth movement and is active in over 60 countries. For 90 years, BBYO has helped shape the lives of its members - 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.

When you think about how you want to define your secondary school years, consider the following: dances, Shabbat dinners and Jewish holidays, sports, community service opportunities, travel experiences, leadership skill-building sessions (where you're in charge!)... and so much more! As a member, you're a part of BBYO and are connected to a great group of friends and plenty of opportunities to explore your interests, build your resume and social calendar.

What's even better about BBYO is that it's a completely customizable experience. Our renowned leadership offerings empower members to create and lead their own programs that reflect their interests.

We "get" the stress that comes with starting secondary school, getting into university and finding a place where you can be yourself, and BBYO offers a comfortable, inclusive environment where lifelong friendships are formed, leadership skills are developed and Jewish identity values are nurtured.

Regardless of the BBYO path you choose, you’ll graduate secondary school with experiences that will set you apart on university applications, provide you with a network of Jewish friends and prepare you for the real world.
