BBYO provides meaningful and exceptional program experiences for Jewish teens in grades 9-12 throughout the Washington, DC metropolitan area. Our programming focuses on leadership development, social activities, community service/social action events, and programs which build a teen’s Jewish identity – all through an inclusive and uniquely Jewish lens. DC Council has its’ own teen board, programming, and identity.

BBYO Connect is the BBYO experience made just for 6th, 7th and 8th grade students. Programs offers both social and meaningful experiences that will serve as a gateway to continued involvement in Jewish life. BBYO Connect offers teens a variety of experiences to help bridge the gap between immediate pre- and post- Bar/Bat Mitzvah and High School programs. The purpose is to provide middle school students with a positive experience in which they can get together with camp, school, and synagogue friends, as well as meet new friends. BBYO Connect allows middle school students to begin experiencing the privileges and obligations of being a member of the Jewish and general communities. Focused on service, social, and Judaic programming, BBYO Connect builds a network of teens across North America at a critical age when middle school students begin to strengthen their identities, form social circles and prepare for high school and beyond.
