International Convention is an Epic Celebration of Teen Culture and Leadership

Every year over U.S. Presidentsʼ Day weekend in February, more than 5,000 of the Jewish community’s top teen leaders, educators, professionals and philanthropists from around the world gather for one of the largest Jewish communal events of the year.

Delegates hear from and meet inspiring speakers, deepen leadership skills, serve the local community, celebrate Shabbat and learn together, have access to exclusive music performances and do their part to strengthen the Jewish Future.

In addition to showcasing spirit and community pride, International Convention (IC) delegates join in the democratic process of furthering BBYO's agenda and elect AZA and BBG’s next International Board. Opportunities to be a part of IC’s host region, engage with the local community, reunite with old friends and build lifelong global friendships are constants of every IC and are always major highlights of the experience.
