Biography represents the author during their participation in BBYO.
In the past, I had a hard time figuring out how I could take action to support the causes and organizations I believe in; but all of my options became so clear once I learned about BBYO’s “Five Paths of Civic Action (SPACE)” resource!
This is how I felt as a freshman (ninth grade in the U.S.) IC delegate, and also as a member of multiple IC steering committees; while leading and attending a bunch of programs throughout the weekend.
The Aleph Zadik Aleph (AZA) and the B’nai B’rith Girls (BBG) are a fraternity and sorority for Jewish teens—together, we are BBYO. Since our founding in 1924 (AZA) and 1944 (BBG), we have been member-led. Our priorities and programs reflect the interests and issues that matter most to us. Our pursuits are as diverse as our participants.
AZA and BBG welcome Jewish teens of all backgrounds, denominations, gender, race, sexual orientations, and socio-economic status as well as those with a range of intellectual, emotional, and physical abilities.
