Year after year, the "International" part of International Convention becomes increasingly robust with more teens joining us from all around the world for Global Ambassadors Week, an exciting time preceding IC where global delegates explore the local sites and get to know the host community. Right now, nearly 300 teens from 45 countries are gathered in BBYO North Texas Oklahoma Region (NTO) for our most exciting lead up to IC ever.
After arriving and kicking off the festivities together, the teens spent Shabbat with host families all over the region, and brought challah and challah covers as tokens of appreciation for their hospitality. Many host families joined together to do group Shabbat dinners, elevating the celebration even further.
On Saturday night, the global teens came together with their NTO peers for a moving and spirited Havdallah service, and for a dance celebrating the unity of the week and looking forward to IC.
Below are photos from last week of the global delegates gathered at airports all across the world, excited and about to begin the journey to BBYO International Convention 2020!
