BBYO | AZA & BBG | International Convention | Summer

Ready to 'WOW' all your friends?

In AZA and BBG, you have the power to plan any kind of event in your community. To get you started—or for inspiration—check out AZA and BBG's Movement and Chapter Initiatives or one of the Chapter Showcase programs featured at International Convention. These experiences are a great way to introduce AZA and BBG to new members, engage current members, and showcase the best of what BBYO has to offer.

Need a little help funding your event? Apply for a Gamechanger Grant to help make it happen.

Movement Initiatives

Movement Initiatives are our signature, highly visible, annual programs that can introduce and engage new, current, and future members to BBYO locally, nationally and internationally. Happening around the same time, and across the Order, these community-wide ‘WOW’ events are a powerful (and fun) reminder that every member and chapter is part of something bigger than themselves.

Need some programming tips? We got you.
