BBYO Wants You!
Looking for extracurricular activities to be involved with after school? Join BBYO, the leading pluralistic Jewish teen movement aspiring to involve more Jewish teens in more meaningful Jewish experiences! For more than 90 years, AZA (Aleph Zadik Aleph, the fraternity component of BBYO) and BBG (B’nai B’rith Girls) chapters in communities around the world have been providing exceptional leadership programs and identity enrichment experiences. BBYO offers unique opportunities for teens to connect with one another, serve their communities, navigate the college admissions process and travel the world, providing each participant with a network of lifelong friends, a perspective that adds value and meaning to life and a shared commitment to strengthening the Jewish future.
AZA and BBG chapters for current 8th–12th graders are teen-led, giving teens the opportunity to develop leadership skills, learn more about their Jewish heritage and meet other Jewish teens throughout Northern Virginia, DC, and Maryland.
Membership is $75 for one year or $149 for four years. To join BBYO, please contact NoVA@bbyo.org, (301) 984-6073, or register online at www.bbyo.org/region/nova. If you would like to attend one program prior to joining, please contact BBYO.
